A group of talented students from the Centre of Excellence for Performing Arts at Cronton Sixth Form College have been celebrating their love of theatre with the launch of a new magazine called ‘Theatre Matters’.
The magazine has been entirely created and written by the enthusiastic students during lockdown in place of not being able to rehearse for their usual Centre of Excellence shows and productions, and has provided an opportunity to continue to bring their passion to life.
The first edition is full of wonderful articles by the creative students about a vast array of topics in performing arts and includes their thoughts about the future of the theatre industry. The keen students are set to continue with the magazine and are collaborating regularly to create content for future editions.
As the students have now returned to college, they are also looking forward to their next theatre project; Les Misérables, which will be streamed live from the Cronton Playhouse on the 1st and 2nd July. Tickets will be available soon for this exciting production.
Matt Plant, Creative Director of the Centre of Excellence for Performing Arts at Cronton said, “I would like to say a huge well done to the students for creating this idea and bringing it to life. The magazine has been a huge success with lots of great feedback so far.”
