'Roaring' reviews for budding beasts!

Aspiring actors 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.

Mrs Rebecca 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 voices. 

“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!”
