Advent Calendar

Normally at this time of year we would be forging ahead with rehearsals for our Christmas Production, this year circumstances have made this impossible, and therefore we have had to think outside our black box.

Over the past months we have reached out and reconnected with our Bursary scheme alumni, many of whom are/have been successfully working in professional theatre and related industries. A fabulous group of these talented folks travelled across the country in order to help us put on Summertime by the Lake this August, and now they are stepping up again!

Our Winternet season is a collection of poems, songs and stories all with a seasonal feel and designed to spread a little cheer. These lovely pieces, each recorded by our students in the comfort of their own homes, will be released one a day until Christmas Eve when we have a piece which we have put together roping in as many of our extended Westacre family as we could! So check back here each day and enjoy the Advent Calendar below!
