COMPOSER Howard Goodall gave young performers advice about a show he had written when he came to visit them at Curve.
The Curve Young Company, a performing arts group made up of 12 to 24-year-olds are busy rehearsing for The Dreaming, which opens on July 4. The show's music was written by the composer, who was tracking the progress of the rehearsals on Twitter after getting into a conversation with some of the performers on the social networking site.
He asked the show's director Tim Ford if he could come and watch the company and was welcomed to the Rutland Street theatre.
Tim said: He asked if we'd like him to come and speak to the young people and we agreed straightaway - I thought it was unbelievably generous.
The young people were asking him all about the show, what he thought they could do better, what he thought about their performances.
It was inspirational to have the composer of the show at our rehearsal - it was fantastic.
The Curve Young Company is made up of about 60 performers, crew and technicians. For more about the show, or to book tickets, visit: www.curveonline.co.uk
