College puts on ‘Shrek-tactular’ Christmas show
14th December 2016
Newcastle-under-Lyme College (NULC) Performing Arts students came together to put together this year’s magical Christmas performance, Shrek.
Following a series of sold-out performances with last year’s production of Aladdin & His Magic Lamp. Shrek aimed once again to dazzle audiences with a spectacular performance containing glitzy costumes, brilliant sing-a-longs, hilarious characters, and even a surprise or two.
Taking place on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th December, the show featured NULC students studying Musical Theatre, Acting and Dance, with technical support provided by students studying Music Technology and Technical Theatre.
Tina McDonald, Performing Arts Centre Manager, said: “It’s extremely exciting to see hard work come together in what was a memorable experience for all who attended. The students really got into the festive spirit, working hard, learning lines and routines to really ensure that it was a fun-filled performance for all the family.”
The NULC Performing Arts Centre is a new £5.5million investment to provide state-of-the-art facilities to students wishing to study performing arts, dance and music technology in the local area. Fitted with a 200 hundred seat theatre, recording studio and outdoor performance area, the centre aims to offer students courses from entry to university level as well as providing a local community venue.
