Performing arts case study

Ethan Luke - Level 3 Diploma in Musical Theatre

“I studied at St Bede’s Catholic School in Peterlee and I had known from a young age that I wanted to work within musical theatre. Once I found out that Newcastle College offered courses in this area, I knew it was where I wanted to study.

Whilst studying at the College we’ve come into contact with truly inspirational performers and industry professionals. Groups such as the London School of Musical Theatre and the cast of Starlight Express gave talks on the industry and advice on how to forge your career. I know that from meeting and talking to such professionals I have been able to take on board their advice and improve my own performance.

Thanks to studying at the College, I have just been accepted to study musical theatre at the Urdang Academy in London. My advice would be don’t think twice about joining Newcastle College as it will change your life!”
