Glee in Crosspool

Two local residents, both producers and directors of the Crosspool Theatre Group, have formed an experimental, weekly Glee Club event to offer youngsters the opportunity to act, sing and dance to their favourite music with professional tuition and supervision.

Helen Marshall-Serrano, now a drama teacher at Firth Park school, is an experienced actress and dancer. Helen has appeared in the past, on numerous off-Broadway musicals in the United States. Paul Heatley, her partner is a professional singer and also a supply teacher at the same school.

The objective of the Glee Club, the format of which is loosely based on the popular TV show, is to provide the perfect opportunity for 7-13 year olds to make new, like minded friends and have fun , whilst improving potential performance skills and self-esteem. Helen comments: “Developing these skills will help the young people in later life, whichever occupational path they eventually choose to take.”

Glee Club workshops are held weekly at King Edwards’s lower school every Saturday between 11am and 12.30pm. A fee of £5 per session is charged.

Helen and Paul are both experienced professionals and are both fully CRB checked and accredited.

The warm weather may seem like a long time ago, but you can remind yourself of the summer with this video of Handsworth Traditional Sword Dancers performing as part of July’s Crosspool Festival:

The dance took place outside Stephen Hill Methodist Church on Manchester Road, opposite the Sportsman pub.

The video introduction is an animated version of the cover of the festival programme, originally designed by Joseph Bates and Max Rowlands of Lydgate Junior and Infant school respectively.
