The sky's the limit

Around 250 students attend Theatre Street Performing Arts classes every week in The Studio at The Link, several of which have caught our eye – and several others in show-business!

With professional acting and singing roles for Sophie Wythe, Charlotte Wythe and Abbie McCorkell in Treasure Island at the Royal Victoria Halls in Tunbridge Wells and Georgina Wiley, Mercedes Fisher Brown, Elisha Hassan and Abi Hassan in Footloose at The Orchard Theatre’s Summer Youth Project, to singing from Mercedes and gymnastics by Eva Dos Reis Alves at Thamesmead Youth Voice’s Access Group’s Talent Show at The Link.

One student, Connor Wilson, is about to film TV drama, Southcliffe in a 70’s flash-back scene and another, Jordan Nash, has appeared in his first feature film about Don Hemingway, where he plays the grandson of Jude Law’s character and is about to take part in Britain’s Got Talent. Three students; Jake Lee, Toshaan Murray-Williams and Luke Temur are also currently filming Thamesmead favourite, Misfits – we hope to have more information for our November newsletter, when the last series of Misfits will be aired.

Theatre Street has also joined forces with Thamesmead’s home-grown CADZ Productions which will see their drama offering expand and students are rehearsing for numerous talent shows, exams and public performances taking place over the summer.

And if that wasn’t enough, we send our congratulations to Theatre Street’s Director, Laurence Mark Wythe whose show, Tomorrow Morning recently received a standing ovation on its opening night at the 630 seat, Theatre Creation in Tokyo!
