PQA BEVERLEY’S ROALD DAHL MASTERCLASS

On Saturday 9th September 2017, the students from PQA Beverley were visited by Andrew and Eve Pearson-Wright from The Long Lane Theatre Company.

The masterclass opened with a 20 minute play that looked at the power of imagination and storytelling. This interactive show was followed by a workshop designed to show the students how they could turn the mundane and everyday into the magical and memorable.

Eve trained at Mountview and graduated in 2006. Since then she has been lucky enough to work all around the world from Nigeria to Lapland, Hong Kong and the West End in theatre, film and television. It was during her run in the world's longest running play The Mousetrap that she met the actor playing her husband and liked him so much they got married in real life! Eve was back in The West End last year in Aliens Love Underpants at The Dominion Theatre.

Andrew can currently be seen on television in adverts for Thomson Holidays, eBay and Beagle Street Insurance. He graduated from The Drama Centre in 2003 and has appeared in numerous stage productions since then.

The Long Lane Theatre Company has a new show "The Giant Killers" touring theatres in 2017.

"Offering specialist industry masterclasses is just one way that we enhance our students' experience at PQA," said Principal James Aconley. "The Roald Dahl masterclass with Long Lane is fantastic, and I know the skills that Andrew and Eve taught our students will be invaluable as they create their own performances".
