Walton Girls’ students have enjoyed an incredible opportunity to work with West End performer Lauren Stroud.

Lauren trained professionally at Laine Theatre Arts, graduating with her National Diploma in Musical Theatre (TRINITY, London). Her theatre credits include Wicked, Grease, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Les Misérables, Doralee Rhodes in the UK tour of 9 to 5, the UK tour of Hairspray and the title role in the Annie UK tour.

Lauren is currently playing the role of Amber in the UK Tour of Hairspray. Year 11 BTEC Dance students and Post 16 Musical Theatre students had the opportunity to learn repertoire from the musical Wicked, while KS3 Musical Theatre club learnt repertoire from the musical Hairspray.

All students had the opportunity to ask Lauren questions about her experience within the Performing Arts industry and gain valuable knowledge and practical advice on how to approach auditions, and progress further in all three performing arts disciplines.

Miss Fox, Head of Performing Arts, said: “It was an exciting day. All of the students really enjoyed the workshops and they had a fabulous time with Lauren.”

A Year 9 student said; “We learnt one of the dances from hairspray which was really fast but Lauren made it lots of fun to learn.”
