Tom Takes Shakespeare on Tour

Shakespeare's comedy Twelfth Night became serious business for sixth former Tom Whittaker as he joined a professional company's tour of the play.

Tom, and PurpleCoat Productions, performed the play across the UK and Ireland in a hectic week of performances. He is one of our bright talents, having achieved ABB in AS Drama, AS English Literature and AS Media while working with professional drama productions.

Tom said: "I was granted the first week of Sixth Form off to go on tour around the UK and Ireland with a professional acting company performing Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.

"Over the week I visited numerous cities including Dublin, Birmingham, Stratford, Liverpool and London, performing in professional theatres across Britain and Ireland.

"Now a part of the company, we have many more projects like this one lined up for the future."

Tom may hope to follow in the footsteps of other Cardinal Heenan students who have enjoyed success as an actor, with the eighth Dr Who, Paul McGann, and Ian Hart, who appeared in the Harry Potter movies, among our alumni.
