Angharad Sanders (pictured), who runs Pembrokeshire based Limelight School for Performing Arts, headed to the West End this week as the guest Musical Director for two exciting performances at the critically acclaimed The Other Palace, the current home of Heathers: The Musical.

The Midlands Academy of Musical Theatre, Drama School of the year in 2020, hosted their industry showcase yesterday (Thursday, May 26) in the heart of theatreland. An industry showcase is a chance for those students about to graduate to display their skills for an invited guest list of performing arts professionals, from agents to casting directors. Also on the same evening, Angharad also appeared as Musical Director for ‘Grads Sing the West End’, a professional production with a line-up of incredibly talented performers and a live band, performing songs from the West End and beyond.

Angharad said about the shows:

“When I moved home to Wales to have my eldest son and opened Limelight, I wanted to ensure that my teaching in the performing arts world always remained relevant and in touch with the ever-changing world of performance. Finding our way online in the past few years has been hard, but has also opened up many amazing opportunities for our students to work with performers across the globe. However, it was truly exciting and a real privilege to be invited to be the Musical Director for both of these fabulous, live shows in the heart of London.

“I am really looking forward to bringing my experiences back to Pembrokeshire to support our young artists on their journeys, wherever life may take them. I am passionate about mindfulness and wellbeing through performing arts and the confidence and self-esteem that this can bring, and keeping in touch with the professional world, hopefully, allows me to truly support our young artists on their path.”

Her next appearance will be as Musical Director for the Gelliswick Community Choir at the Hakin Jubliee Street Party on Friday, June 3. Following this will be the Limelight performance ‘You Will Be Found’ at Milford Haven’s Torch Theatre on July 17. The school is performing to raise awareness and much needed funds for the local charitable foundation Megan’s Starr Foundation which offers support for young people dealing with bullying and mental health issues. Tickets will be on sale very soon from the Torch Theatre Box Office. To find out more about Limelight School for Performing Arts visit facebook.com/limelightpembs .
