THE National Theatre of Scotland chose Achaleven Primary School in Connel as part of a special nationwide photography project.
A project by celebrated Scottish photographer John G Moore was commissioned to capture six different locations across Scotland, and Achaleven school was chosen to showcase Argyll.
A neon sign saying ‘ BOX OFFICE’ was designed by the company to travel around the country reflecting the many Scottish tours, by road, the National Theatre of Scotland undertakes every year.
The sign was taken to Achaleven Primary this spring where it was photographed in a classroom.
John said: ‘It was a pleasure working on such an exciting and creative project with the National Theatre of Scotland.
‘The images all contribute to telling a unique visual story about the company, capturing its national reach, its bold productions and the different and sometimes unusual locations that the company plays in.’
Sharon Burt, head teacher at Achaleven, added: ‘We were very excited to be involved in this project. The National Theatre of Scotland’s school productions encapsulate the expressive arts and the curriculum in a very engaging way and help inspire pupils who want to pursue a career in the creative arts.’
