My Life Learning Student Dan Pout has been starring in the multi-award winning Imaginarium Theatre’s touring production of Romeo and Juliet.
Always passionate about drama and acting from a young age, over the years Dan has performed in several productions at the Citadel Arts Centre in St Helens and also trod the boards whilst at college in Sheffield.
First involved with Imaginarium Theatre last year, Dan has previously acted in their children’s production of ‘Willo the Wisp and the Fire Sprite.’ Specialising in spectacular site-specific and outdoor touring productions of Shakespeare’s plays, Imaginarium bring re-imaginings of literary classics and enchanting walkabout fairy-tale productions to life for children and families.
And the production of Romeo and Juliet certainly was spectacular. Playing a number of characters, including the seller of that critical bottle of poison, Dan has been part of a very successful six week run.
Currently on a supported internship at My Life Learning, Dan has a clear love for drama. Sue Cadman, Deputy Head of My Life Learning said on seeing the production:
“We’re all very proud of Dan, he knew all his words so well and it really was a stunning production – his acting was fantastic.”
Having thoroughly enjoyed his experience of Romeo and Juliet, Dan is now planning to continue with Imaginarium for their next show in the autumn – we’re booking our tickets now!
