Students from the Centre of Excellence for Performing Arts at Cronton Sixth Form College took to the stage last week with a fabulous performance of the Lerner and Loewe musical, My Fair Lady.
Centre Stage Theatre at Riverside College was packed out on Wednesday and Thursday evening by an enthusiastic audience who all thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
The entire cast worked extremely hard and this showed in the professional quality of the whole performance. The leading roles were played by Tommy Washington previously from The Bankfield School as Professor Higgins and Adam Baker as Pickering who are both studying A levels at Cronton Sixth Form College and Eliza was performed by Chloe Millington who is previously from The Bankfield School and is currently studying Drama on a BTEC in Performing Arts. The performance was enhanced by the College’s Funk Orchestra who were a fantastic accompaniment to the show.
The Centre of Excellence for Performing Arts offers a unique production programme that enables A Level and BTEC students the opportunity of performing in a large scale extra-curricular performances. Over the last year alone the Centre of Excellence has attracted over 2000 people to its last three productions and My Fair Lady has definitely continued the excellent standard.
Mary Murphy, Head of Cronton Sixth Form College said, “The dedication and professionalism of our students and staff shone through last night ensuring our performance hit industry standards. We were delighted to share this with pupils from The Heath and The Bankfield through our gifted and talented workshops. We eagerly await the next performance – Evita in March.”
