Posted by Kate Lemon on May 17, 2017 7:17:55 PM

As students busy themselves preparing for their end of year showcases, Simply Theatre’s Head of Drama, Richard Tunley, who has many years of experience as an actor, director, producer and teacher - gives us an insider’s view of choosing the best materials for our students. “Choosing the right Acting Showcase scripts for our students takes time and a great deal of preparation.
