The Triplestar Associate programme is designed specifically to nurture emerging talent in the field of performing arts.

Creative director and principal at Triplestar College, Emma Bailey-Hague, said: “Our Triplestar Associate students loved every minute of the performance.

“The Wizard of Oz provided a fantastic opportunity for the students to strengthen their technical and performance ability while at the same time, having fun with the celebrities.

“The students deepened their skills which helped support their triple threat training in singing, dancing and acting, while at the same time, providing a memorable experience.

“We want to inspire our students towards excellence in practice.

“By providing professional, industry relevant education and training, we deliver a vibrant and dynamic learning experience for all our students.”
