Windsor college students perform to sell-out crowd at National Theatre

Performing arts students at a Windsor college performed in front of a sell-out crowd at the National Theatre in London.


The 15 students, from East Berkshire College's Windsor campus in St Leonard's Road, delivered an performance of a Tomorrow by Simon Vinnicombe.

It tells the story of a group of year 11 pupils who find themselves precariously on the brink of adulthood.

The performance was part of the National Theatre Connections Festival and took place on Thursday, July 3.

Student Rui Gouveia, 19, from Windsor, said: "Before the performance, we had the chance to rehearse with professionals from the theatre and the writer.

"It was great to get their advice on how they saw the characters and especially important to know that the writer was happy with how we delivered his work."

The National Theatre Connections Festival is an annual festival of new plays for young performers, which aims to inspire 13-19 year-olds with high-quality new writing.
