A charity performance of Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard by final year BA (Hons) Acting and BA (Hons) Actor Musicianship students from Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance has raised £300 for Bexley SNAP, a charity which supports disabled young people and their families.
For the past ten years, the Sidcup based College has been donating proceeds from one of their productions, to the Mayor of Bexley’s chosen charity. This year the Mayor of Bexley, Councillor Sybil Camsey, was joined by the Chief Executive of Bexley SNAP, Aline Macready and other guests for the performance in the College’s Rose Theatre on Tuesday 10 November.
Rose Bruford College Principal and Chief Executive Michael Earley, said;
“We are delighted to, once again, support the Mayor of Bexley’s charity. On behalf of the cast and production team and everyone at the College I would like to thank the audience for their generous contributions to Bexley SNAP, which plays such a vital role in our community."
After the performance the Mayor and guests met members of the cast and production team to congratulate them on their performance.
Afterwards, Aline Macready said;
“I would like to congratulate the cast and back stage crew for an excellent performance of The Cherry Orchard. On behalf of the trustees, staff and above all the children and young people attending Bexley SNAP services, I would like to thank the College for their kind donation.”
