Huddersfield New College is inviting everyone to enjoy a special viewing of our ‘A Very Merry Christmas’ production which has been made especially for local care homes to enjoy. You can view this via our YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSyPsLOAlKc&feature=youtu.be
The DVD has been made for residents of Lindley Grange and Greenacres Care Homes, which HNC Performing Arts Alumni Jess Skirrow is now the Manager of! Year 12 and Year 13 students were filmed for the festive extravaganza which features performances such as a Christmas singing and dancing medley, ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ and ‘Only Remembered’ from War Horse.
Led by Dance teacher Cat John with fantastic support from our peri Music teachers Chris Pulleyn and Thom Meredith, whilst featuring the stars of the future, the DVD also opens with a current celebrity – with Coronation Street and Strictly star Catherine Tyldesley opening the show with a special festive message.
Cat explains: “Our students are of course missing performing for a live audience, and we created this DVD not only of course to bring some festive cheer to our local care homes during these difficult times, but to give them an opportunity to work on a professional show product that would still be enjoyed by a real-life audience. Our students have worked so incredibly hard, and I am very proud – a few students have had to self-isolate and still joined rehearsals via MS Teams! We hope that both the residents and anyone else watching our end of term production at home enjoy the show.”
