West End Star Runs Shrewsbury College Musical Theatre Workshop


West End’s ‘Wicked’ star, Kane Oliver Parry, joined Performing Arts Students at Shrewsbury College today for an awe-inspiring workshop.

Kane recently concluded his run in the West End production of Wicked, covering the role of Fiyero. He joined students on Tuesday 6 September to give them an insight into the Performing Arts industry. The workshop consisted of a highly energetic musical number which they learnt under pressure and performed to an impressed audience at the end of the day.

Michael Jenkins, Lecturer in Performing Arts at Shrewsbury College who trained with Kane commented, “It’s been such an insightful experience for our students. Welcoming Kane, an inspiring West End professional to visit us on just day two of our course, has given our students a fantastic grounding for the academic year ahead.


“Students have been able to ask questions related to Kane’s work and have thoroughly enjoyed this valuable experience.”

“I really enjoy coming to work with the talented students at Shrewsbury College,” adds Kane. “The course they have on offer here is great – it really prepares them for the reality of becoming a professional performer”.
