Talented young performers across Merseyside are being offered the chance to experience a day in the life of a student at Liverpool Theatre School as the centre of excellence announces a series of taster days for those considering a professional career on the stage.
Liverpool Theatre School, whose graduates can be seen in smash hit shows such as SIX, Frozen the Musical, Wicked and Blood Brothers, is inviting aspiring performers to enjoy a broad range of classes, with taster days in both Dance and Musical Theatre on the bill.
During the sessions, budding performers will have the opportunity to meet students and tutors, who will be on hand to give an insight into student life at Liverpool Theatre School and answer any burning questions about training at a professional level. Those attending the taster days will also be able to try out some of the exceptional facilities at the Sefton Street campus, located on the edge of the city’s creative quarter.
Speaking on the taster days at Liverpool Theatre School, Principal Maxine Ellis, said: “Progressing into full-time professional training can be hugely exciting for ambitious young performers, although there are lots of considerations to make before taking the leap, from course content, class sizes and facilities to financial support and bursaries available.
“Our taster day experiences aim to answer many of these questions, as well as offering a feel for what life is really like as a full-time student on an elite training programme at Liverpool Theatre School. We’re very much looking forward to giving the next generation of professional dancers and theatre stars a chance to be a student for the day as they look towards the next steps in achieving their future ambitions.”
Liverpool Theatre School, whose patrons include dance legend, Wayne Sleep OBE, and renowned West End theatre producer, Bill Kenwright CBE, provides professional training in Musical Theatre, Dance and Acting, with a number of bursaries and fully funded places awarded every year. Widely recognised within the industry, all full-time BTEC and Trinity accredited courses at the Ofsted ‘outstanding’ Liverpool Theatre School are designed to give young people the skills they need to enjoy a career on the stage.
The taster day experiences at Liverpool Theatre School, which start on Friday 20 and Tuesday 24 January, are designed for young performers (over the age of 14) who are thinking about a professional career in the performing arts industry.
