Arts Award In Action
In April 2018, Rust & Stardust supported students from Orford CEVA Primary School in their Bronze Arts Award. Twelve Bronze Arts Award Students took part in our Black Shuck project. The students participated in every stage of the project, from making their own puppets to be used in the show, to rehearsing puppetry, acting, songs, dance and movement, and finally taking part in public performances as the show's chorus alongside Rust & Stardust.
