AFTER the success of their summer school last year, Lynn Anderson and Mark Barclay have gone into partnership with the Arts Guild/Beacon Arts Centre to stage two one-week musical theatre schools at the Guild in Greenock.
The courses -- from 23 to 28 July and from 5 to 11 August -- will help young people – aged 13 to 21 -- who want to improve their singing voice and learn the essential breathing techniques which not only strengthen the voice but, more importantly, protect it. There are acting and dance classes too.
Our House performed by Kayos, the most recent show directed by Mark Barclay with Lynn Anderson as musical director
