SUAC Onstage students shine spotlight on lockdown learning

15th February 2021

Performing & Production Arts students from Stratford-upon-Avon College have been shining the spotlight on life in lockdown with a series of Instagram takeovers.

College doors may be closed but learning continues across all the College’s courses. Acting, Dance, Musical Theatre and Technical Theatre students have taken to the SUAC Onstage Instagram page and shared daily videos of the exciting work taking place and how they are adapting to learn from home.

In this lockdown alone, students have packed in Trinity exam sessions, improvisation sessions and created small character development films independently. And with one-to-one tutorials on monologues, students continue to prepare for their stage school auditions.

From baking ‘prop cookies’ to rehearsing lines for Much Ado About Nothing, the insightful videos reveal how both students and lecturers are working hard to navigate these unusual times and ensure that nothing gets in the way of their education.

Assistant Head of Department, Claire Morley, said: “It is time for people to see what is going on behind the now closed doors of the College. Whilst the physical building may not be open, full and comprehensive training in Acting, Dance, Musical Theatre, Technical Theatre, Music Performance and Music Production is still happening – and what is happening is truly inspirational.”
