Starlight MD visits WOAPA

The Musical Director of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Starlight Express visited The Students of West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts on Saturday.

Over 140 WOAPA students and their families attended the opening night of Starlight Express at The New Theatre, Oxford, on Tuesday 11th Dec and students were delighted to meet the Musical Director, Dave Rose, when he visited the Children’s Theatre School, in Witney on Saturday 15th.

Dave, who went to school in Witney himself, watched the children perform songs and dances based on Starlight Express, and answered questions the children wanted to ask about the production.

School principal, Brian Conroy said “The children have been learning songs and dances from Starlight Express this term and is was a fantastic opportunity for our students to meet someone like Dave, who is working at the top of his game, on the professional tour of Starlight”.
Here is a video of our last day of term, including Dave's visit and some Christmas fun!
Merry Christmas!
