All the world’s a stage for GCS students


Updated 30/04/2018

Almost 30 students from Gower College Swansea have been offered places at some of the UK’s most prestigious drama colleges and universities.

“Our Performing Arts department has had the most amazing twelve months and these stories of successful progression are a wonderful way to end the academic year,” says Learning Area Manager Lucy Hartnoll.

“Not only have they staged hugely successful productions such as Disney’s Aladdin Jr, our Acting Company was fortunate enough to work alongside Richard Mylan and Simon Slater on Generation O at the Grand Theatre. To have this calibre of professional – both were involved in the Olivier Award-winning production of Killology at The Royal Court Theatre – work alongside our students on a live showcase was an incredible experience for everyone.”

The students currently holding offers are:

Noa Radford; Tom Bytheway; Jacob Young; Kiera Ellis; Billy Rees; Ben Thomas; Cameron Webb; Cody Evans; Fraya Jones; Ffion Davies; Emily Jones; Cerys Sprake; Ashley Williams; Eve Harris; Georgia Whitehorn; Aisha Thomas; Carl Francisco; Joe Murphy; Eve Burridge; Laura Cooke; Lewis Francis; Rhys Horton; Charley South; Sophie Mclean; Jake Kingston; Jake Porter; Chloe Williams; and Aaron Harvey.

Gower College Swansea offers a range of full time courses in drama, performing arts and theatre production and live events. These include Level 2 and Level 3 Performing Arts, A Level Drama, A Level Dance, Level 3 Technical Theatre and a one-year Level 3 specialist acting course.

From September 2018, the College is also offering a Level 4 CertHE Musical Theatre in partnership with the University of Gloucestershire.

Before leaving for pastures new, these students will stage a production of West Side Story at the Taliesin on 11 and 12 May – tickets are on sale now.
