Blog: Sumayah Belbouab

Hi… My name is Sumayah and I have been at Half Moon Theatre for a week on my work experience.

I’m going to share my experience with the world!!!

Ok maybe not, but I am going to share it with whoever reads this. Anyway, let’s move on.


Monday 25th January

I arrived at the theatre at 10am, relieved to have reached my destination after being stuck in traffic for an hour. I got to see a play just after I got there, it was called Lullaby Lane, it was a play for children.

After the show, I got a tour of the whole building, it’s so much bigger than it looks!

After lunch break, I worked on the computer in the office, I did quite a lot of typing, nothing really interesting but someone has to do it. Before I knew it the day was over and it was time to go home.


Tuesday 26th January

The day started at 12 o’clock, I arrived 15 minutes early, which is a whole new record for me.

I finished off some of the work I was doing the day before, I then went to a nursery school with Amari and Madeline to observe a workshop they were doing with the children, the kids were so cute!

After I got back to the theatre, I got to observe the Eclipse Youth Theatre session. The group was amazing. After the session finished, it was the end of the day and I went home.


Wednesday 27th January

On Wednesday I started at 2:30 pm, I did some more typing on the computer for about an hour. I then went to watch the Equinox Youth Theatre session, like Eclipse, this group was great but was more energetic and lively.

After that, I got to observe the Solar Youth Theatre session, a session for disabled teens, I even got to join in to the activities, which was a lot of fun.

At 8:30pm, the session was finished and I went home, exhausted and ready to go to bed.


Thursday 28th January

The day started at 10am, I finished off the typing on the computer. I then went to see Lullaby Lane again to help me write a review for the play.

After lunch break, I started writing a report for the youth theatre sessions, by the time I finished, it was the end of the day and I went home.


Saturday 30th January

Today is my last day here, so I have started writing a review for Lullaby Lane, I then went to watch another show called Rumpelstiltskin, and then finished off the review I started writing. After lunch break, I did some more work on the computer and then finished writing my blog.

It was then the end of the day and time for me to go home.
