Over the summer, our Performing Arts students were busy taking part in a number of high profile productions. Mathew Bircher and Callum Newman (year 13) were involved in a production of The Tailor Of Gloucester at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham. The re-telling of this classic story was created especially for the Everyman, and involved professional actors, community dancers and community singers. It ran for a week and received excellent reviews in both local and national press. Callum Newman was also on stage in London’s West End, performing with the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. This organisation is celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year, and mounted a gala performance in London featuring current members, including Callum, as well as famous actors who began their careers with the NYT. The famous faces included Dr Who actor Matt Smith as well as James Bond actors Daniel Craig and Timothy Dalton, among others.
