Theatre-loving King’s Ely students spent their half term break over 3,200 miles away in New York.

A group of more than 30 King’s Ely Senior drama and theatre students and staff spent the week in the ‘Big Apple’, where they got to take part in theatre workshops run by industry professionals.

The group also saw new musical, Dear Evan Hansen and they enjoyed a tour of the famous NBC Studios, where the pupils split into groups to perform and direct their own ‘live’ chat show.

The trip also included visiting the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Station and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.

Director of drama and theatre at King’s Ely, Nick Huntington, said: “Our pupils were not only able to immerse themselves into the theatrical scene in New York, working with industry professionals currently performing on the Broadway stage, but they were able to soak up the sights of one of the greatest cultural hubs in the world.

“It was an extraordinary educational experience for our drama pupils at King’s Ely and one they will never forget.”
