An incredible story.
Congratulations to Oscar & BAFTA winners Ross White, James, Paddy, Tom, Seamus and the rest of the team of ‘An Irish Goodbye’, this is the stuff of dreams (or a Hollywood film).
Not many will know this, but Ross was in a junior production of Les Mis back in 2009.
Ross has been one of our teachers at Belfast School Of Performing Arts over the last few years.
He has taught the pupils at BSPA many things but last night he taught them the best lesson of all ~ along with ability and imagination, that commitment and self belief can take you anywhere.
Youth theatre is so important, beneficial and invaluable to so many young people- the arts are important to us all.
Artistic director, Peter Corry was able to catch up with Ross, Oscar & BAFTA. What an honour!
What a huge achievement and what a great example to our pupils. We couldn’t be happier for him.
Well done boys!!
