Giggleswick seeks talented performers

Wednesday 9 Jan 2019


Our search is on for talented young actors and musicians to take part in our performing arts workshop and find out about the latest performing arts scholarships now available for senior school pupils.

The one-day workshop on Saturday January 12 will allow talented youngsters to experience our performing arts departments for themselves.

Giggleswick Marketing Director, Jane Paul, said “We are reaching out to youth theatre groups, orchestras, dance companies, drama enthusiasts, singers and musicians and inviting them to take part in the workshop, run by our teaching team.

Our head of drama, Gareth Warburton, is well known for producing challenging and exceptionally high-quality shows, from complex musicals to Shakespeare, all in our state-of-the-art Richard Whiteley Theatre.

Head of music, Margie Simper, is a renowned professional soprano in her own right, with a CV which includes the Cambridge Taverner Choir, the Cambridge Renaissance Singers, The Ellen Ensemble and the BBC Daily Service Singers. This experience brings an extra dimension to the learning experience for our pupils.

The team will split the workshop into drama and music preferences with the two coming together for a performance at the end. It promises to be an exciting day for anyone passionate about performing arts, whatever the genre.”

Our on-site theatre, which is as well-equipped as any large city venue, was provided by a generous legacy from the late broadcaster and journalist, Richard Whiteley, who was a pupil at the leading independent school.
