YEAR nine students from across Lowestoft are being visited by an award winning theatre company stressing the importance of their future choices.

CragRats performed at Denes High and Kirkley High School on Wednesday and will take to the stage at Benjamin Britten High School this Wednesday to show how their educational choices affect their life in a fun and interactive manner.

Funded by Aimhigher Suffolk, the tour has been running for the past three years and has received very encouraging feedback.

The performance sees three characters go back in time looking at how their decisions at school, their friends and family affect their current career choices.

But far from being mundane, the show is packed full of playground humour and, at times, the actors launch into their own versions of chart hits such as 'The Boy does Nothing' by Alesha Dixon.

Natalie Poole from CragRats said: “Watching and participating in an educational performance allows the audience to really engage with the characters and scenarios. Some of what they will see will reflect their own thoughts and experiences when trying to choose their paths for the future.

“The key messages from the performance are reinforced through workshop activities and the different blend of learning methods used, appeal to all learning styles. This ensures that the messages stay with them long after the CragRats team have gone home.”
