OR Sean Laing (2012-2019) is producing a musical

We are delighted that Sean Laing (OR 2019), is producing a musical at the local, Whitty Theatre, on Saturday 28 August at 2.30pm. 

Sean is studying at the Central School of Speech and Drama studying Stage Management and would like to invite the Reading School community includings staff, students, parents and Old Redingensians to the forthcoming performance. 

 Sean said:

“During the last lock down, I wanted to work on something that would create opportunities for people like myself who may have had their professional training or launch into the industry disrupted. We have an incredible cast of performers, most of which are local and all of which are currently in full-time training, or have recently graduated. Performance opportunities are what Drama School training is all about, and so many people have lost out on these over the last 18 months. It's so exciting not only to be back working in a theatre, but to be producing my own show, which is even more exciting given I'm back in the venue where we staged 'We Will Rock You!' back in 2018.

'Songs for a New World' is the perfect show to return to the theatre with, despite being written in the 1990s, it resonates more than ever right now. I'd love for lots of the people coming to this show to be returning to the theatre for the first time since the Pandemic started, and for their first experience back to be a show that's been developed by emerging performers, producers, lighting designers, designers and musicians.”

In addition, Reading School’s School Captain (2021-2022), Adam P is also joining the band for the show as a Bassist/Guitarist.

Join us in supporting our former and current students, as well as celebrating the creative arts which has been hugely impacted during the pandemic.
