Kate Ridley-Holloway at Stagecoach said: “Although it isn’t the same as working with our fabulous students in person each week, it is still an exciting opportunity to work with lots of industry professionals from the Westend that would otherwise be busy performing.
“And we are of course working behind the scenes whilst all of this happens, with lots of awesome ideas coming together for when we can return - including a Summer Stagecoach Festival.

“The live workshops have worked really well with lots of participants both live and using the videos on our page afterwards. We have even had some Q&A sessions with the performers after their workshops to get an insight into the industry.
“There will be lots more workshops over the coming weeks and we would love to hear suggestions on what people would like to see next.”
