Foxlowe Youth Theatre update
After a fantastic day of “taster sessions” on Saturday 4th February, the places on our youth theatre workshops are filling fast.
If you are logging on to our web site after reading the Sentinel article, just a few corrections.
Yes, Katie White IS an ex pupil of Westwood High, but she went on to train specifically in leading youth theatre at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama. Central School is the Oxford to RADA’s Cambridge of theatre if you wish. Their stars range, over the generations, from Sir Laurence Olivier, onto Dame Judi Dench and many others and latterly Christoper Ecclestone, a former Dr Who and a leading actor, who is probably himself a future knight of the stage.
Now also a busy local school teacher, Katie, with her co-leader, Tasha Morley, who specialises in dance, movement and even fight choreography, blew us all away with their taster sessions. “We knew they were good, but they were absolutely brilliant.” The joy on the children’s and young peoples faces said it all.
The remaining places for our Saturday morning workshops will go quickly. Log your details on the Youth Theatre page here and applications will dealt with strictly in order. This is going to be a major feature of the local youth cultural scene.
