Riverside School of Performing Arts re:acts!

Summer in the RSPA and Raw Nerve office has been a time of tidying, planning, summer school and saying a sad farewell to Drama Tutor, Sarah Tester. Since being an RSPA student herself in 2004 Sarah has spent the last two years teaching and directing on the course. She has been a wonderful asset to the team injecting creativity, fun and encouragement into all she has done. As she moves to Southampton to begin her new life as Mrs Sinclair she will be greatly missed but sent with much love and prayers.

Following on from Sarah’s departure Raw Nerve ran the week long React summer school where 30 young people aged 8-15 from the local community came to train in drama, dance and singing. It was a fantastic week with one parent feeding back “it was the best drama week she has ever done, the care and love given alongside the training encouraged her in a way she has never before experienced.”

The final month of the summer will be spent getting ready to welcome back our team of 3 second year interns, Vicki Stanley, Becky Garside and Esther Wilkes who will be working with Raw Nerve Theatre Company. We will then be welcoming our new RSPA first year student team at the start of October. It’s a busy but exciting time and we know God has awesome plans in store!
