from St Paul’s School in Shepton Mallet put their talents to the test at a
musical theatre workshop held by the Drama and Music Departments.
The ten and eleven
year olds, who are all part of St Paul’s school choir, were invited to join in
rehearsals ahead of the girls’ schools summer performance of ‘Beauty and the
Beast’. This included a visit backstage,
trying on costumes, learning a song and dance routine and understanding the
role of stage director.
Hurstwaite, Head of Drama at Bruton School for Girls, explained: “I was amazed
to see how much their confidence grew throughout the day. They were all fabulous and had superb singing
“We saw some real
talent there and very much hope this workshop has inspired them to continue
with their drama and singing – they could be stage stars or theatre directors
of the future!”
