On Wednesday 12th July a group of pupils accompanied by Mrs Beesley and Mrs Fender visited the West End for the matinee performance of ‘An American in Paris’. After a detour of London due to King Phillipe of Spain’s state visit the group arrived at the Dominion Theatre excited and in good spirit thanks to Joe Elliott and Thomas Wooster’s informative sight-seeing guide. The show was amazing! Slick changes of set, fabulous music and sublime dancing. We were all impressed.
After the show the pupils met with former Brynteg pupil Alyn Hawke who is currently performing in ‘An American in Paris’. Alyn took a question and answer session with the pupils before signing programmes, tickets and having numerous selfies. Since graduating with a first class honours degree in Musical Theatre Alyn has performed in ‘Evita’ (British and European Tour), ‘Top Hat’ (British tour, London residency and Japanese tour) and ‘Miss Atomic Bomb’ (London residency).
