Pupils at St Leonards have enjoyed a bite of the Big Apple�s theatre heartland.

18 students aged 12-18 travelled to New York to take in the magic of Broadway and immerse themselves in the culture of one of the world�s most famous cities.

During the four day trip � which is organised bi-annually by the School � the youngsters attended performances of �Peter and the Star Catcher� and �Ghost�, and took part in special workshops on stage combat and musical singing.

St Leonards Music teacher Fiona Love led the group.

She said, �The New York trip offers our students a fantastic opportunity to experience Broadway, work at close quarters with theatre professionals and see a show in one of the great theatre centres of the world.

�The pupils all got something out of the workshops, which were taken by Broadway professionals.�

During their stay, the St Leonards party also managed to take in some of NYC�s other famed attractions as they visited the Empire State Building, toured Radio City, and viewed the Statue of Liberty.

�They really enjoyed the shows but they also loved the cultural experience of being in New York, which is a hugely exciting place to visit,� added Fiona.
