Tripping the Light Fantastic with Layton Williams: A Musical Theatre Masterclass

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Are you thinking about studying Musical Theatre at university? Well why not come along to University Centre Shrewsbury’s first Professional Workshop Series masterclass with West End star Layton Williams.

This Sunday (2nd July), UCS and Theatre Severn have teamed up to welcome Layton, star of Rent, Hairspray, Billy Elliot and the BBC’s Bad Education, to deliver a once in a life time workshop.

The event will see the star exploring repertoire straight from the stage, plus he’ll be offering participants the chance to take part in an open and honest Q&A session. The workshop promises to be a fantastic and challenging three hours!

At just 11-years-old Layton joined the Billy Elliot training academy and went on to be the ninth actor to play Billy on the West End stage. He continues to be a tour de force so we are certainly lucky to have him coming along. Don’t miss out and get your dancing shoes on!
