Sixteen Phoenix Youth Theatre senior students were lucky to attend a 3 hour monologue Masterclass by former student Theo Ancient recently, who coached them in monologue delivery with a particular emphasis on auditions for Drama School. Theo is more than qualified to run such sessions considering that after graduating from Phoenix he gained a place at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and has recently been cast as Albus Potter in the Olivier Award winning west end production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Phoenix Theatre Arts are producing Bugsy Malone, the most famous kids musical of all time, and are looking for performers aged from 7 to 17 to take part – particularly boys. Producer and director Phil Dale hopes many locally based youngsters will overcome their fear of open auditions and be brave enough to get down to the Rhodes Arts Complex on Sunday 13th May.
