Professionals from the entertainment industry came together to view some of Scotland’s finest emerging performing arts talent at NCL’s annual invitation-only showcase.

Performing to packed audiences over two days at Glasgow Southside’s Tramway, BA Acting and BA Musical Theatre students showcased their repertoire of talent and skills gained through their studies.

Seventeen BA Musical Theatre students opened their two 70-minute performances with the title song from Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and closing with Finale B from Rent.

A further 18 BA Acting students also performed two 70-minute showcases at the event, including excerpts from Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew and Popcorn by Ben Elton.

Following the performances, the students held a meet and greet with invited guests over refreshments.

Gregor Duncan, Curriculum and Quality Leader for Performing Arts, said: “I am delighted and very proud of the New Clan Arts staff and students.  

“Their hard work and passion has been evident throughout this process resulting in a fantastic showcase and an amazing response from the performing arts industry guests, many of whom said it has been the strongest showcase event they had attended.”

Members of the public will be able to watch the students in action in a series of performances in May. BA Acting students will stage two productions at the Scottish Youth Theatre: Dracula from May 17 until 19, and Machinal from May 22 until 24.

Meanwhile, BA Musical Theatre students will stage Into the Woods at Websters Theatre on Great Western Road in Glasgow from May 28 until 30.
