Two students, including one from Great Gransden, have won places at RADA, the world famous school of dramatic arts.

The Bedford College students will be studying technical theatre and stage management with a view to careers behind the scenes and will be joining at least three others currently studying at RADA.

Euan Davies, 20, from Great Gransden, and Kaylan Bone, 19, of Cranfield, and have won places at the prestigious school after studying production arts at the college’s South Bank Arts Centre.

A cast of other students, with a range of skills and talents, have won places at nationally recognised performing arts schools such as Mountview, LAMDA, Rose Bruford and East 15. More have gone on to universities running the best courses in the country.

Former college students include Marcus Ayton, recently in Bill Kenwright’s version of the musical Joseph, and Igor Smith, who was in the Regents Park production of Peter Pan.

Links with real work experience in local events and activities is a valuable feature of courses at Bedford College. Euan has worked with the long established musical team the Marianettes at the Trinity Theatre off Bromham Road and Kaylan has assisted at The Place on Bradgate Road.

If you would like to train in the performing arts from the age of 16, visit the Bedford College open day from noon untiil 7pm on Thursday, August 20.
