On Monday evening students at Bath Academy of Musical Theatre were treated to an inspiring We Will Rock You workshop with former cast member Lindsey Stokes. Lyndsey has just finished in the West End production of We Will Rock You. Prior to that, she has appeared in the hit musicals Saturday Night Fever, Dirty Dancing and Starlight Express.
The BAMT students were taught the choreography of two of the songs from the hit show in a very energetic session, which was followed by a Q&A about life at drama school and theatre work in London’s West End.
Lyndsey was impressed with the quality of the students at Bath Academy of Musical Theatre, and how hard they worked during the session. “The staff are doing a great job preparing students for life at drama schools – and the students’ enthusiasm to learn is fantastic.”
Head of Music Tim King said ‘The students really felt the benefits from working with such an inspiring performer – and learnt a great deal in a short amount of time. With thousands of hopefuls applying to top drama schools, we have to provide our students at BAMT with the best one on one training and masterclasses from musical theatre specialists to give them a chance at succeeding.
Founded by Rob Hickmore and Tim King, Bath Academy of Musical Theatre is now in its second year offering the best musical theatre training in the area. The course focuses on audition preparation and is a must for anyone wishing to gain entry to full time drama school and musical theatre courses.
Due to Rob and Tim’s connections with the West End and top drama schools, students at Bath Academy of Musical Theatre are regularly treated to masterclasses with highly experience performers and directors, such as Mary Hammond (Royal Academy of Music), David Ashley (Cats and Blood Brothers) Helen Colby (Sweeney Todd and Sister Act) and Neil Ditt (Mary Poppins and High Society).
BAMT staff are all professionals from the musical theatre world in both performance and teaching. Their previous students have gained places at institutions including GSA, Mountview, Royal Academy of Music and Bristol Old Vic.
