Carl Spencer visit

Years 3 to 6 had a fantastic time with Carl Spencer who has recently starred as Magnus The Escapologist in ‘Matilda The Musical The Film’ and Richard in ‘Rocketman’, a 2019 film based on Elton John. He has also starred in top West End Musicals such as Hamilton and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.

Carl shared some of his favourite drama warmups followed by coaching pupils to create their own Matilda scene and narration. For Year 6 pupils this was a great opportunity to receive tips from Carl ahead of their upcoming Leavers Production Auditions.

It was certainly a pleasure to have Carl help broaden the young minds in learning how to narrate a musical.
