A Level Drama and Theatre Studies students at Nelson and Colne College Sixth Form have entertained audiences with their examination performances of two plays; Fin Kennedy’s drama ‘How to disappear completely and never be found’ and Charlotte Keatley’s ‘My Mother said I never should’.

Drama and Theatre Studies at Nelson and Colne College is a highly successful course, which aims to help aspiring thespians to gain an insight into both the practical and theoretical aspects of theatre. In previous years, students of the course have gone on to enjoy great success at university, drama schools and their later careers and in 2012, the College was thrilled to learn of the success of one of its former A Level Drama and Theatre Studies students, who secured a job with the Royal Shakespeare Company, straight after completing his degree at top drama school Rose Bruford!

Performing in How to disappear completely and never be found was Liam Roseden (Charlie), Holy Balk (Tubewoman/Ellie), Katie Moody (Doctor), Gabrielle Porter (Erica), Jack England (Mike), and Laura Brook-Smith (Sophie).

Group 2, performing My Mother said I never should was Ashley Burke (Doris), Laura Ashworth (Margaret) Rebekka Gaiger (Jackie) and Amy Spencer (Rosie).

All of the performances were polished and accomplished, with audiences impressed by the talent on show. It is clear that these young people have bright futures in front of them!

Drama and Theatre Studies tutor Lesley Playfer said, “The students did really well and really engaged their audience in their performances.  I’m very proud of them.”
