Students take to the stage for experience
A TRIO of performing arts students have been keeping busy with stage roles.
Student Simon Pickford won the role of Prince Charming at the Congleton Pantomime’s Production of Cinderella, and already has his next part lined up, warming up to play the part of Andy in Brassed Off.
He will be joined by fellow student Aimee Jackson, who is currently in the chorus of Sweeny Todd with the Trinity Operatic Society, and has secured the role of Gloria.
Fellow student Gabbie Boswell, has been getting some fantastic as Aladdin as well as being the choreographer for the Gawsworth Pantomime.
Sarah Bacon, course leader at the college, said: “These students are completely committed to a career in the industry and realise that to make it in the performing arts world they need to have experience of working in different theatres and in different roles.
“I am impressed with how these three students combine working in productions whilst continuing to meet the demands of their college course.’
