Performing songs from popular musical theatre shows, students from our dance and drama courses impressed audiences, at the Gala Theatre in Durham, with their one night only ‘Showcase’ performance.

The show allowed the students to gain first-hand experience of working within a professional theatre, a profession many strive to be successful within. Experiencing live performances in a professional venue is an essential part of the performing arts course.

Lisa Petrie, Performing Arts Lecturer, said: “All the students had an amazing experience working at the Gala Theatre, for many this was their first time on the stage with a live audience. The emotions at the final curtain were of exhilaration and pride for themselves and their peers. It was a wonderful experience for all involved.”

Brandon Hadwin, drama student, said: “Performing on the Gala stage felt amazing, it was a magical night.”
