On Saturday 23rd September, children, family and friends attended the launch of The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts in Buckingham, according to The Bucks Herald.
Cllr. Anja Schaefer, the Mayor of Buckingham, cut the ribbon marking the launch of the brand-new academy in an event celebrating the occasion. At the new Academy, children will sample classes in PQA’s core modules; Comedy and Drama, Musical Theatre and Film and Television, whilst parents have the opportunity to watch their children in action.
Anja Schaefer, Mayor of Buckingham noted: “I’m always extremely happy to support and welcome people and new businesses in Buckingham; I think it’s really important. And new opportunities for children to do something they love. Lots of wonderful things, it’s not just dance, it’s drama, it’s theatre, it’s making films, so I think there should be something for everybody and for all age groups as well. I wish you a lot of fun today!”
Principal Ryan Van Champion added: “I’m so excited to bring PQA to the young performers of Buckingham and its surrounding villages. As a resident of the town, I want it to reflect the amazing community feel it boasts. So much fun awaits, I can’t wait to welcome everyone to the new academy this September!”
