‘It’s very exciting to return to the Cockpit, one of Wac Arts’ favourite venues, which we have visited a number of times over our 40 year history. Whilst all students get showcased in this year’s production of Bernarda Alba the Musical, the performance mainly represents the culmination of our 3rd year’s training and is their opportunity to show friends family and most importantly the wider industry the amazing artists they have become. We are proud to offer them this platform and have no doubt that they will, not only each be successful in their own right, but begin to change the very face of the performing arts world. We are joined in this venture by a dynamic creative team including: Director Julia McShane, Musical Director James Cleeve, Choreographer Talia Cohen and Designer Sophia Simensky’. Steve Medlin (Head of Drama)
