Truro School recently hosted its annual LAMDA Showcase evening in the Burrell Theatre.
LAMDA, which stands for The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, is a well established organisation that help to train the next generation of actors, directors, stage managers and more.
Claire Rawlinson, LAMDA (HOD) at Truro school said:
“I’m very proud of all the students who took part in the LAMDA (London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art) Showcase. Through studying LAMDA, students not only learn about how people ‘tick,’ but how the World works.”
“By putting themselves in the shoes of the characters, students get to understand themselves better and this can be both life affirming and life changing. It’s a pleasure to teach such a dynamic and inspiring group of young people.”
The night was a resounding success with over 20 acts taking to the stage. Performances varied from five to fifteen minutes with a pick of the bunch below.
