National Theatre Wales has a spectacular production planned for this Easter. The Passion is inspired by the traditional Easter story, and brings actor and Fellow of the college Michael Sheen (The Damned United, Frost/Nixon) back to his home town of Port Talbot for 72 hours of continuous theatre at multiple locations supported by over 1000 volunteer cast members.
The team to produce such an epic event? Most stage management graduates from RWCMD, including Sarah Cole who is managing the whole production.
The cast? 14 professional actors originally from the area, including RWCMD Acting graduates Mathew Aubrey, David Rees Talbot and Jordan Bernache.
The design? Assisting Wildworks designers are a team of six of our third year theatre design students, who are using the project as part of their final assessment. They are leading a larger team of assistants from the first and second years of the course.
Sounds like an epic production – bring on Easter weekend!
