York College to play part in theatre company

York College has announced a partnership with a theatrical production company.

Over the coming months, students will be involved in supporting York Mystery Plays, using a variety of skills learned on college courses.

Liz Moon, head of marketing at the college, said: “York College can offer much needed support towards the 2012 production.

“To kick-start the process tutors and students will lead workshops during York Residents’ Festival weekend, highlighting a range of skills needed to bring the Mystery Playsto life.

“For example at the Yorkshire Museum residents can ‘Have a go’ at media make-up techniques, prop making and biblical crafts.

“Also, watch out for the College’s Performing Arts students who will be in the city centre engaging residents in a medieval dance flashmob experience.”

Liam Evans-Ford, community producer of the York Mystery Plays, added: “I am delighted York College has become a leading educational partner.

“The students’ many talents will benefit the production enormously.”
