Will is currently at ESPA (Eastern School of Performing Arts) at Stamford, where he has been working on a BTEC musical theatre course. And he’s been singing the praises of the course he’s leaving and encouraging others with a similar passion to consider it.
“Since joining Eastern School of Performing Arts I have learned so many things about myself as a performer,” he said.
“The musical theatre course will fit your needs no matter how skilled you are in the disciplines of singing, acting and dancing. It is without a doubt the best free training for musical theatre in this area.”
“There are numerous opportunities to experience what being a performer is like at ESPA. In my first year at the college we performed at the O2 in London which was a tremendous experience and by the end of the two years we will have taken part in two full-scale shows.
“In my eyes and many others ESPA isn’t like a college at all, it’s a family.”
Will, who is now fundraising for his foundation course in the capital, says he owes much to the school.
He added: “I am very saddened to be leaving ESPA this year, but without them I wouldn’t be able to say that I have earned a place at Arts Educational Schools, London.”
Kelly-Ann Gordon, head of Post 16, said: “Will is a brilliant example of a student who has worked hard during his time at ESPA, making the most of every opportunity given to him.”
Places are still available to students aged 16-18 who want to study full time BTEC musical theatre or dance with a view to a career in the industry. The places are fully funded and are led by dedicated professionals with experience in many areas including film, TV and musicals.
Anyone wishing to apply for one of the courses should call the school on 01780 762000 and arrange an immediate audition. For more information go to www.easternschool.org.uk
