Wednesday, 13 June, 2018 to Friday, 15 June, 2018
Matcham Auditorium, Theatre Royal Wakefield

The talented students of Wakefield College will once again collaborate with Theatre Royal Wakefield to bring you the Mechanics' Performing Arts Summer Season. Each year, students from across the performing arts and music department showcase their talents in a rip-roaring voyage of theatre, dance and music, at Mechanics’ Theatre, Theatre Royal Wakefield and various music venues within the city.

Prideland is a dramatic, elegant and stylised dance production based on the story of the Lion King. The story takes us on an epic journey of self-discovery and the harsh turns of life events that can lead us to take the rightful place within the circle of life in order to restore the Prideland.

With a dramatic soundtrack, African sounds and creative choreography; you can re-live one of the oldest stories of all time.

This production is performed by Level 3, 4, 5 and 6 Mechanics’ Dance students and showcases a fusion of dance styles and techniques to bring fantasy and excitement to the story of good versus evil.

Choreography by Maria Korsnes and Louise Wilkins.
