Students take to stage for end-of-year shows

Budding musicians and actors are taking to the stage as part of West Nottinghamshire College’s annual end-of-year creative arts festival.

Level 2 and 3 music students will play hits from artists such as Fall out Boy, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga during a two-night extravaganza at Sutton-in-Ashfield venue The Diamond, on Stoney Street, on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 May from 7pm.

Tickets for the shows cost £3.50 on the door and £3 in advance from the college’s Media Studio in Thoresby Street, Mansfield.

Year 2 National Diploma performing arts students will perform Arthur Miller’s The Crucible – a dramatisation of the Salem witch trials – at the Old Town Hall in Mansfield’s Market Place on Thursday 26 May at 2.30pm and Friday 27 May at 2pm. 

Tickets are available in advance from the Media Studio and cost £4 adults and £3 concessions.

HND performing arts students take centre stage once again the following week when they present Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus at Mansfield’s Queen Elizabeth’s School, on Chesterfield Road.  The performances of Shakespeare’s first tragedy set in Roman times are on Wednesday 1 June and Thursday 2 June at 7.30pm and feature music by HND music students.

Tickets cost £5 adults and £3 concessions and are available from the Media Studio.

Curriculum manager for media and music, Steve Gathercole, said: “This year’s productions are not to be missed.  This is a great opportunity for the public to come and see some of the finest new performing artists appear live at local venues.

“We’re very proud of our students, who have developed their skills, enthusiasm and unique styles in their specialist areas throughout the duration of their courses.  They are a real credit to the college.”
