Sabine

Currently in my third year studying technical theatre course at the University of Salford.

Throughout my time at Haven High my love for theatre continued to grow. Once realising that being a performer is not a future for me, Mr Patman and Miss Green helped me understand that there are plenty of other career options in theatre that don’t involve performing on a stage. I was introduced to stage management and with my skill set such as being organised, I found my dream profession which would still let me be a part of the theatre community. I am Currently in my last few months at University. During my time here I have discovered many more roles in theatre and have gained the skill of learning how to create stage designs understand the function of other departments and continue to discover more plays and practitioners, During my time at Haven allowed me to understand the importance of theatre practitioners and the influence their work has in performances.

– Curator for TEDxYouth@BrayfordPool and did my own TEDxYouth talk in 2018

Taking Performing Arts at Haven High Academy gave me the confidence to help express my self freely and the continued confidence going into new projects and business work.

I learnt through practice how to work collectively with different people and understanding my own role in those relationships. Also, to see the joy in the little things, taking conversations and work and finding the creativity and fun in everyday things.

Rhys

Haven High gave me the skills and confidence to pursue a career in the arts leading me to join my top choice drama school Italia Conti on their BA Musical Theatre Course. I am now in my third year preparing to gain agent representation before hopefully working within the industry. My biggest achievement to date would be landing 4 named parts, ensemble and assistant dance captain for my third-year musical ‘Legally Blonde’ as well as building a plentiful and intimate network with respected performers and creatives alike.
