The performance is just one part of a whole day of activities that pupils engage in on the theme of Ancient Egypt, but the great thing about it is that they get to follow the characters, intrepid explorer Jesse and archaeologist Dotty through a door and onto the stage set of a pyramid tomb! The whole show is totally immersive and there's been a great response so far with one head teacher calling it ‘outstanding’. It’s amazing how much work and planning has gone into creating the experience which has been produced in partnership with Hope Street Limited. The whole set had to be designed so that it would fit into a transit van along with the cast … I bet that’s a spectacle in itself.
Ancient Egyptian Adventure is just one of the many Find Your Talent programmes currently being rolled out in the Liverpool city region, and I’ll be telling you more about others in the future. But don’t worry if you’re not part of the programme – you can still marvel at the wonder of ancient Egypt in our gallery at World Museum or learn about proverbs and witty sayings from ancient Egyptian society in our podcast.
