Carney Academy open for business

Have your say

A NEW performing arts school will open at Rotherham Civic Theatre this month.

‘Carney Academy’ is an exciting new project run by West End and Broadway Director Ruth Carney-Nash, whose credits include Ghost the Musical and Lord of the Rings.

Ruth told The Star: “Carney Academy will provide students and local people with an inspirational, professional, challenging and transformational learning environment.”

The school, a new branch of a performing arts school previously based in Sheffield, is open to everyone aged eight to 80 and focuses on drama as a tool for building confidence, using social and vocal skills and also developing performance and professional theatres skills.

All classes are taught by professionals working successfully in theatre, TV and the arts and Ruth will personally teach audition techniques to experienced actors or those wishing to join the industry.
