Tantalising talent showcased at Stratford-upon-Avon College…

Submitted by on December 29, 2014 – 7:15 am |


Level 2 Musical Theatre student Rosie Heap, 16, prepares to sing Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again from Phantom of the OperaStratford-upon-Avon College students have been displaying their expertise for ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent.  The talent show’s production team visited the College on Friday 12 December to hold first-stage auditions for its 2015 series.

The auditions, open to all staff and students, showcased the skills within the College, and the diverse talents ranged from singing and dancing to stand-up comedy.  Talented teens from all departments took advantage of this unique opportunity to prepare their acts, perform in a professional setting and build their self-confidence.

Senior researcher Jake Court from Thames TV has been visiting selected Colleges around the country. “We liked the look of Stratford because we felt there was a lot of talent in the town waiting to be discovered. There’s an abundance of it at schools, theatres and open mic sessions so it was a natural choice for us to come and do the auditions here.”

Phoebe Morris, 17, who is studying Level 3 Acting, talked about her performance: “The production team were so lovely and down to earth. It made the whole process so much more relaxing.”

Let’s hope some are invited to the next stage of the competition – the first televised auditions where they will have the opportunity to show their talent to an audience of millions!

Take a look at some of the students and staff being interviewed backstage by the College’s Media students before their big moment.
