Theatretrain Isle of Wight put on a charity concert to raise money for The Mountbatten Hospice

We are DELIGHTED to announce that we raised £616 for The Mountbatten Hospice!

On Friday 28th October, Theatretrain students, ex-students and teachers performed a charity concert, featuring many songs from your favourite musicals, at Ryde Academy theatre, in a bid to raise money for The Mountbatten Hospice. 

All proceeds from ticket sales went to charity, along with all money raised from the fabulous raffle!!! 

A fabulous evening for all who attended!

Led by a wonderful creative team – Julie Caudle (Production), Hannah Caudle (Vocals) & Milly Jolliffe (Choreography), and with performances from some of the Island’s most talented young performers, it was no surprise that the concert was a huge success. 

The audience were excited to witness student, Mila Lake (The Voice 2022), take to the stage for her first performance since The Voice! and there were lots of tears when Sophia Houghton joined her to sing Shallow (A Star is Born), which was one of their winning duets from their competing days!!
