A2 Drama and Theatre Studies are working very hard towards their written exam. In preparation for it they have been to see King Lear at Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester and A Mid Summer Night's Dream at the Globe Theatre in London in the past couple of weeks. The productions were very different to each other but both were excellent and a great experience for our aspiring actors. One student stated Mid Summer Night's Dream was "the best thing I have ever seen."
Rosie studied Level 3 Performing Arts here and achieved D*D*D. She said “college was thoroughly enjoyable. My favourite thing about my course was that I performed every day and my Work Placement shadowing a director has given me more opportunities to work with him. Now I’m acting alongside him in a play at the Hyde Festival. I love capturing the emotions of the audience, where storytelling is powerful at bringing the truth to light with characters that connect to the audience in a way that makes them think about their own actions”.After college Rosie enrolled for her foundation course at The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in Wigan, now acting in a play at the Hyde Festival, Rosie has been accepted into the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. Rosie was inspired by her friend from who had been accepted into the prestigious school after 3 auditions, after hearing about the great time she was having Rosie felt the urge to apply to this prestigious institution.
