4SIXTEEN Theatre Company

4SIXTEEN Theatre Company – Castle Newnham School’s in-house theatre company that launched in January 2017 after being awarded the prestigious BEST YOUTH PRODUCTION award for The Lion King by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association in 2016. The theatre company incorporates both primary and secondary pupils of the school. Each year 4SIXTEEN produces an annual theatrical production, as well as other smaller performances and concerts.

Our 2018 production will be ‘Singin’ in the Rain’. Auditions for secondary pupils will take place in autumn 2017, with performances taking place in early summer 2018 in the brand-new studio theatre in the performing arts hub.
