6:00pm Friday 1st November 2013 in News
LUCKY students at a Frinton theatre group were able to train with a West End star.
The Stagestruck Academy pupils have been rehearsing for their upcoming production.
And students, all aged 12-18, were boosted by the help of musical theatre stalwart Nic Greenshields.
The performer has been a part of major West End musicals including Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables.
He gave up his time to run a special workshop with the Frinton youngsters, running through the choreography and showing them how professional actors prepare.
Stagestruck principal Simone Castle said: “The students have been so excited to have such a successful musical theatre performer come down to the academy to work with them.
“It has been a fantastic opportunity for all of the children and has given them a real insight of what a lot of them hope to be doing professionally sometime in the future.”
The upcoming Stagestruck show will include dance, acting and singing excerpts from Bugsy Malone and Les Miserables.
It will take place at the Columbine Centre in Walton on Friday January 31 and Saturday February 1.
