Pair acting up
Former Stonelaw pupils star in show
Mr Lee-Michael, who trained at London’s Royal Academy of Arts and the Jacques Lecoq mime school in Paris before working as an actor in London and directing a host of productions throughout the UK, said: “The Plaza Suite is made up of several snippets of what different people’s lives are like, meaning the show is everything from funny and happy to dark and sad, giving the students a chance to gain a wide range of experience in terms of acting out different emotions.
“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.”
