Bedford School GCSE Drama Boys Coached by Special Guest

Published Thursday 15th of November 2018 11:28:29 AM

Bedford School boys preparing for their Academic Drama GCSE were given some very special feedback from an exceptional guest – the founder of the National Youth Music Theatre (NYMT), Jeremy James Taylor. With just four weeks to go until their final exam, the boys were given the unique opportunity to perform their extracts in front of Jeremy. He was then able to give the boys constructive criticism and ideas on how they could improve their pieces. As an accomplished and experienced director, with over 200 productions to his name, working with the likes of Sheridan Smith and Jude Law, the boys were hugely privileged to receive feedback from Jeremy. He told the boys that stage presence, in particular in those crucial first 10 seconds, is so incredibly important. “Grab the moment, be confident, look up and think boldly” he advised with enthusiasm and animation. Head of Academic Drama, Mrs Antoinette Keylock, enthused, “The students found Jeremy an inspiring director to work with and he was impressed with their talent. I am sure this experience will help them to achieve highly in their final exam.”
