'Learning from West End Professionals'


Actor Richard Reynard, originally from Leighton-Linslade, is principle of Musical Theatre High! Based at Vandyke Upper School, Leighton Buzzard.

Richard trained professionally at Laine Theatre Arts in Epsom and has worked as a professional actor for the past 15 years with West End credits such as Cats, Chicago, The Witches of Eastwick, My Fair Lady, Mamma Mia! and Blood Brothers, among numerous other exciting shows.

Alongside performing, he has taught students of all ages and currently works for the prestigious theatre school Tring Park. For the past two years he has been a drama teacher at Stagecoach in Blackheath, London.

He is now bringing his teaching skills to Leighton Buzzard.

Richard said: “Musical Theatre High! gives youngsters from the ages of 6-18 the chance to sing, dance and act at either the one off Musical Theatre High! Workshops or every Saturday at the Musical Theatre High! Academy. There is always a show at the end of each workshop and a performance at the end of each term at the Academy so parents, guardians, friends and family get to see their child shine on stage.

“I have the most wonderful assistant, Kate West who welcomes the students when they arrive and helps if there are any problems when classes are in progress. Together we create a very safe and warm environment. We are both CRB checked.”

It doesn't matter if you have no experience on stage, all that is required is enthusiasm and a desire to perform.

Come and learn from West End professionals and experience a Musical Theatre High!

Performances and workshops lined up for August include Toy Story for six to 10 year olds. Also, The Sound of Music for the age group.

Eleven to 18 year olds will be working on Les Miserables.
