Collyer’s drama students have returned from London, where they enjoyed professional shows and workshops from some of the country’s top theatrical practitioners.
Collyer’s Head of Drama and Assistant Director of the Faculty for Arts, Neil Kendall, explained: “Our students enjoyed two days in London – watching ‘Come from Away’ and ‘Waitress’. They also had an intensive Physicality & Puppetry Workshop with Antony Antunes, famous for Circ de Soleil and War Horse. In addition, the group also enjoyed a West End Vocal Workshop with Richard Munday, whose credits include Phantom of the Opera, Mamma Mia and Blood Brothers.”
Collyer’s Deputy Principal Steve Martell was delighted: “Massive thanks to Neil Kendall, a gifted performer in his own right, for organising these amazing opportunities for our talented drama students. We are also hugely grateful to Antony Antunes and Richard Munday for their truly inspiring sessions.”
Andrea John, Collyer’s Vice Principal (Student Support) added: “These types of practical educational experiences are invaluable for those following the creative arts pathways; I’m thrilled to hear that the students had such a wonderful time!”
