BTEC Level 3 National Diploma Performing Arts: Acting Pathway
First year Acting students presented their version of William Shakespeare’s tragedy, ‘Romeo and Juliet’.In their performance, the students emphasised the running themes of blind passion, hatred and prejudice. The group also had three casts in one performance to reflect the diverse performing abilities of the group and to give the Acting students an opportunity to show off their skills.
Westminster Kingsway College first year Acting student, Rosemary Nwosu played Tybalt, whose aggressive nature brings him to an unfortunate end by Romeo’s sword.
Rosemary said: “It felt so good to be performing Romeo and Juliet in front of a big audience; you never get tired of that thrill. I enjoy my acting classes, as we cover somany topics from improvisation to classical theatre and I can’t wait for what the future has to offer.”
BTEC Level 3 National Diploma Performing Arts: Musical Theatre Pathway
The College’s first yea Musical Theatre students performed a musical theatre review called ‘Showstoppers’, which featured songs and sketches from well known shows, including Oliver, A Chorus Line, Cabaret, Cats and The Lion King. The students also devised two mini musicals called ‘Spotlight’ and ‘A Moment From Life’.
Musical Theatre student, Nadine Bico, who is originally from the Philippines, came to study Musical Theatre at Westminster Kingsway College because it was recommended to her as one of the few colleges in London that offered the course at such a high level. After College, Nadine would like to go to drama school.
Nadine said: “I love studying at the King’s Cross Centre. The facilities are great and my favourite place is the dressing room! Some of the classes such as ballet worried me as I had never done it before but our teacher was so understanding and helpful and now I’m so proud of the new skills I have picked up.”
