Godspell and Adele @ Room97 Creative Academy!

IMG_3891 - V2 This week Room97 Creative Academy saw a fantastic hairstyle recreation session with Theatre Royal Wakefield Performance Academy students.  The brief was to recreate a theatrical hair style from the musical Godspell and as well as the singer Adele, with two of their very talented students in preparation for the show “Sing, Dance, Act” taking place tonight 27th February.

The session took place at the Room 97 Creative Academy at their Trinity Walk facility and was also a wonderful teaching and learning session for a group of Room97 Creative Academy students, school learners from Wakefield City Academy who attend the hairdressing academy once a week to study a GCSE equivalent qualification in Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy.   Jean Oram, Off-site Learning and Careers Co-ordinator of Wakefield City Academy said,

 “I think it was a great educational concept for our learners, and it was amazing to see the transformation.  Our students really enjoyed the session.”

This activity also sees the launch of a series of joint planned events between the Theatre Royal Wakefield and Room97 Creative Academy and how both are working to develop young talent in the Wakefield and West Yorkshire region.
