The official launch of the Izzard Theatre at Bexhill 6th Form College - which included a performance and official unveiling ceremony by Eddie Izzard - was followed by the ‘On an Ordinary Sunday’ Gala Show.
This featured West End stars Carl Sanderson, Christopher Howell, Sarah Harlington and former West End performers Natalie Roberts and Adam Hepkin. They were joined by Bexhill College students who relished the opportunity to work and perform with professionals.
Alongside the West End talent on display the students impressed the audience with a variety of familiar songs drawn from famous musicals. Sarah Coleman’s solo performance of ‘On My Own’ from Les Miserables was one highlight as well as a medley from Titanic, the musical being performed ahead of this year’s College musical on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 April.
Bexhill College’s Izzard Theatre features a 200-seater theatre, separate rehearsal spaces, green rooms, a drama studio, a fully equipped kitchen, recording rooms and conference facilities. The Izzard Theatre will be available to hire for performances by touring and local theatre companies, as well as community groups for conferences and other events later this year.
