Meet Brighton Xmas Lights Switch-On Performers: The Theatre Workshop

50 The Theatre Workshop students will be taking to the Xmas lights switch-on stage

We’re really looking forward to seeing students from The Theatre Workshop perform at the Christmas lights switch-on!

Established in 2003 by Lora Munro to provide training centres of excellence for young people, each of The Theatre Workshop schools run under one central team as opposed to a franchise.

After being on the creative team since its inaugural year, Rebekah and Craig Whiteley took the helm of The Theatre Workshop in 2016 and now have over 400 students, aged 4-21, from across 8 workshop schools in Sussex.

Their professional team of teachers – all established performers themselves – run weekly workshops in all aspects of theatre, TV & film, singing and dance. The aim of all classes is to prepare students for regular professional and amateur performances, exams, festivals, competitions and auditions.

Up to 50, bright, young talented performers from The Theatre Workshop will be taking to the Christmas lights switch-on stage, singing favourites such as Christmas (baby please come home), Brave and Morning Glow.

“Brighton is my home town which I love and Christmas is my favourite time of the year,” Rebekah Whiteley, Creative Director tells us, when asked why she wanted The Theatre School to be involved with the feel good festivities. “It’s all about the children for me, so singing at this event was at the top of my Christmas wish list!”

See The Theatre Workshop perform at Brighton’s Christmas lights switch-on 2017 in East Street, from 5pm on Thursday 16th November!
