The Community College at Lingnan University (CCLU) has collaborated with Actors’ Family, the most prominent musical theatre company in Hong Kong, to foster the students’ interests and enhance their skills in performing arts. A signing ceremony was held on 19 November, officiated by Ms Mandy Yiu, Executive Director of Actors’ Family and Dr Brandon Ng, Dean of the Community College.
The collaboration project will last for a year, during which Actors’ Family will serve as artistic advisor for CCLU and organise different types of activities for students to enhance their knowledge of the performing arts. The activities include lectures, performing arts training workshops, song lyric writing courses, film screening and trial acting sessions.
A musical singing workshop was conducted after the signing ceremony. The students dressed up in costumes of Phantom of the Opera and took photos wearing their masks. Lingnan Institute of Further Education will also join the partnership with Actors’ Family later.
