Past and Present Performing Arts students celebrate five years of excellence
A host of past and present students from Cronton Sixth Form were brought together for the Five Year Celebrations of the Centre of Excellence for Performing Arts.
The past students and sold out audience, which included the Mayor of Halton, had travelled from across the country to help the College celebrate the past five years of professional shows and concerts.
The event, which was held in the new conservatory venue at Cronton, chronicled the previous productions, including Evita, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera and most recently Dracula.
The evening began with a champagne reception and an opportunity for past students to catch up. This was followed by a compilation movie, which included footage of all of the trips, including New York and Paris. It also included previous unseen rehearsal footage which featured many of the returning students and then finished with a showcase of the forthcoming musical production, Chess, which will take place in the Centre Stage Theatre, Kingsway on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd July.
Matt Plant, Artistic Director of the Centre of Excellence said, “It was exactly the right event to start our celebrations and end the Spring Term. So many wonderful students from across the five years came together to share the event and remember shows that created wonderful opportunities and memories for us all.”
