Students from PQA Wolverhampton to perform in London’s iconic West End
Students from The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts in Wolverhampton are delighted to be preparing to perform in London’s West End in a specially written show..
Students from the afternoon classes have been preparing numbers and scenes to bring together in a night of action-packed excitement performing on stage at Her Majesty’s Theatre, home to Phantom Of The Opera.
It is a huge operation to incorporate all of the students giving everyone a chance to shine, there are loads of roles available and lots to do for everyone. The students have been practising American accents and rehearsing every week all leading up to the next few weeks as they approach the dress rehearsals.
Julian Elcock, Principal at Wolverhampton said “This is our flagship performance opportunity for students, to perform on this stage with parents and families travelling down with them to see the show is incredible, many professionals never have the chance to perform in the West End so for children as young as 6 to do so is fantastic. We spread the roles around too, one of the lead characters for our show is just 7 years old”.
With animated backdrops and the show specially written for PQA by Ben Langley of BGT fame, the show is a fun romp set in the Wild West featuring songs the parents all know and can sing along to as well as newer popular songs too.
PQA, which was started by actress Pauline Quirke and her producer husband Steve Sheen in 2007, is a weekend performing arts Academy providing tuition for children and young people from 4-18 years. Students spend three hours rotating through hour-long sessions in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre and Film & TV. There are more than 170 Academies nationwide.
