UAL Musical Showcase

14th March 23

Our talented UAL students recently put on an incredible musical theatre showcase in the Phoenix Theatre.

As part of their preparation for the event they worked on their vocal performance with opera singer Yvette Bonner.

They also had a visit from Sam Spiro who worked with each performer to bring character to their singing. Having access to expert masterclasses is a real bonus for our UAL students.

Music and Performing Arts teacher Nell told us about the performance: “Our UAL students have worked incredibly hard for this terms Musical Theatre showcase, and I am so proud of their achievements in such a short time. We are fortunate that the course allows us to shape a production like this, allowing students to have complete ownership from choosing and researching a wide range of musical theatre repertoire to develop into a full-scale production. In true KAS style we had a fabulous audience on the night who were delighted by the wonderful array of musicals on show. Laughter and tears were shed and once again this group of eight performers demonstrated what talent we have within the school.”
