Performing Arts students excel in Halloween events at Avoncroft
A group of Performing Arts students from Worcester Sixth Form College have recently been involved in the Halloween events held at the Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings in Bromsgrove. The students participate in these events each year, supported by Alex Daw, teacher of Music Technology, and his sound and lighting company. Along with other professional acting companies, the students prepared and performed a run of spectacularly spooky shows to entertain the general public as they moved around the museum as part of a tour.
This year, the students prepared a five minute piece, including sound, lasers, lights and projection, which they performed in the old Toll House. This was repeated every ten minutes throughout the event, totalling more than 60 performances over the three evenings!
The students skilfully adapted their performances as the evenings progressed to suit the varying audiences and age ranges. The performances were very well received and were praised by many of the 300+ visitors, not to mention the staff at the museum!
Alex Daw said: "I could not have been more proud of the students. They not only took responsibility for their own transport but also their own makeup, costumes and the adaptation of the piece throughout the event and also to suit the different age groups in each tour. They were amazing!"
A member of the public who attended the event contacted the College and said: "I would just like to comment on the extraordinary skills of the Worcester Sixth Form College Performing Arts students at the recent Halloween Event at Avoncroft Museum. My family and I were so impressed with their performance. I was astonished to learn that they were students! I also appreciated the way that they reassured the children in our group afterwards. Their maturity and competence is a credit to the Performing Arts department, and to the College. Please thank them for us, I think you have future stars in the making there!"
