Senior Drama Students enjoy a night out in the West End, courtesy of Jack Petchey!
Thanks to a small project grant from the Jack Petchey Foundation, our Phoenix Senior Youth Theatre students enjoyed watching A Comedy about a Bank Robbery at the Criterion Theatre, London on Wednesday 27th February.
The Comedy about a Bank Robbery is a very funny play by Mischief Theatre, the team behind the hugely successful A Play that Goes Wrong. Mischief Theatre was founded by, among others, ex-Phoenix student Dave Hearn who kindly arranged for us to have a Q&A session with the cast after the show! This was very exciting and hugely informative for our students. Having the opportunity to ask the cast about their training, auditions and journey to the West End stage was hugely beneficial to our students and a real treat for all of us to get up close and personal to the stars of the show!
The Comedy about a Bank Robbery was thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining and educational evening for all involved. Thanks again to Jack Petchey for the wonderful support your organisation gives to the students of Phoenix Theatre School.
