A Crowdfunding page has been set up to help support a drama school in Gerrards Cross during the current economic crisis.

The CK Theatre School, which also has a branch in Chorleywood, have now seen their students return to the schools.

But with the pandemic showing no sign of stopping, a page has been created to help to recover the loss of income over the spring and summer months, whilst also keeping the company Covid secure for their students.

The target is to raise £4,000 for the school and at the time of writing, they are on £1,345.

Additionally, the school launched a monologue competition to help their students express how they felt during the three-month lockdown period.

Josh and Lucy Sills, managing director and principal at CK Theatre School said:: “We felt it was important to continue classes during lockdown, not only to ensure the longevity of CK Theatre School, but also to maintain a connection with our students and teachers, enabling them to enjoy the structure, friendship, and familiarity that our classes bring.

“The monologue competition was launched to give our students the opportunity to express their feelings, concerns and personal experience of lockdown, and we’re delighted that our incredible young people did this with such eloquence, honesty and flair.”

Some of the monologues include this on by 14-year-old Matilda Brocklehurst.

The monologues were uploaded onto the internet, and the winners will be announced soon.

It reads: “Quarantine has been hard on a lot of people, don’t get me wrong, but I am someone who cannot stand being alone.

“I guess that’s why I’m filming this and putting it out there, so I feel like I’m talking to someone.

“I have so many thoughts I want to share and I’ve had a ridiculous amount of time on my hands, so you can bet my dog is fed up with hearing them.


“People have always said I talk too much, but I do that to fill the silence and there’s a lot of that. Everything’s so quiet, I’m still getting used to it.”

The students returned to the school on September 21, and if you would like to donate to the school, visit www.crowdfunder.co.uk/get-ck-theatre-school-back-in-the-studio.
