Solihull TheatreTrain students put together virtual performance of poignant 'Voices of Lockdown' for 75th VE Day commemoration

Solihull Editorial 6th May, 2020   0

STUDENTS from Solihull’s TheatreTrain centre for performing arts are staying in touch with their teachers via Zoom during the Coronavirus crisis.

And their most recent online get-together saw them perform the touching poem ‘Voices of Lockdown’ as part of this year’s VE Day commemorations this Friday.

Each of the 29 children taking part in the production recorded their own sections and the finished piece is already being shared around.




Centre director Sara Shepherd told the Observer she was so proud of them all.

“These really are exceptional circumstances right now and I’m so thankful we can stay in touch with all our students online.


“It’s also wonderful being able to share their fantastic performances.

“It’s a hard time for many children stuck at home without their friends at the moment, so we have currently made all of our online classes and theme sessions free of charge.”

Anyone between the ages of four and 18 who would like to join TheatreTrain’s classes in dancing, acting or singing, should visit www.theatretrain.co.uk to find out more.
