“They were only given four weeks to re­hearse be­cause this is around the same amount of time pro­fes­sional ac­tors are given to work on shows and we wanted to give the stu­dents as re­al­is­tic an ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing in the in­dus­try as pos­si­ble.

“The tight turn­around has been chal­leng­ing for them but also a lot of fun – they’ve learnt some fan­tas­tic skills which they will be able to ap­ply if they are cast in pro­duc­tions af­ter fin­ish­ing their stud­ies.”
