Brian Conley headlines a wonderful show

What a night! Actor and comedian Brian Conley was among a cast of top names who performed at our fabulous West End to Worth charity show last Saturday.

The show was run in partnership with West End actor Matthew Goodgame, who is currently starring in Jersey Boys at the Piccadilly Theatre, and the evening raised a large sum of money for the Alzheimer’s Society. Matthew is a friend of Worth since teaching our students how to hand jive ahead of last year’s production of Grease.

He was joined on stage in the Performing Arts Centre at Worth by Brian Conley, who is currently appearing as Tom ‘Rocky’ Cotton in EastEnders, and Ashley Stillburn, who played the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera in the West End last year. Other professionals appearing included vintage harmony trio The Spinettes and singer Darryn Watkins.

Our students also played a large part in the evening, with some fabulous performances, while The Adult West End Choir provided great entertainment with three Worth teachers – Head of Drama Mrs Natalie Lynch, Mrs Caroline Burton and Mrs Sarah Flint – among their numbers.

Thank you to everyone who bought tickets for the evening and in doing so supported the Alzheimer’s Society, which is a charity close to the heart of Matthew Goodgame but also there are lots of people within the Worth community whose lives have been touched by Alzheimer’s or dementia in one way or another.

While being an absolute honour to have the likes of Brian Conley and others performing at Worth, the evening was also a wonderful reflection of the talented students we have at the School and the teaching they get from our Drama department.
