Sir Frederic Osborn youngsters in Years 12 and 13 visited the Campus West theatre – part of borough council-run CW Entertainment – earlier this month.

They soaked up advice on the marketing, production, technical and theatrical aspects of staging live events.

Miss Sarah Standage, subject leader for Drama at Sir Fred’s, said: “I’d like to thank CW Entertainment and its staff for the time and effort they gave in presenting to our sixth form students.

“The visit was exactly what we needed and it was lovely for the students to see and understand how a theatre works.

“It has inspired our students too, with a couple of them even asking about work experience which is really encouraging.”

Councillor Tony Kingsbury, executive member for policy and culture, said: “I was really glad to hear that our friends at CW Entertainment were able to host these budding students from Sir Fred’s.

“All it takes is to be inspired and you never know, we might have ignited a flame in one of them that takes them all the way to the Oscars!”

“So I hope they managed to get as much out of the day as possible, and I’d like to thank the technical staff at the theatre for sharing their enthusiasm and wisdom.”
