Actor Charlie Treading The Boards Back At Home!

We have been delighted to follow the dramatic career and successes of alumnus Charlie Day (2004-16).

On leaving RGS Worcester, Charlie trained in Acting at Bath School of Music and Performing Arts, followed by doing an MA in Performing Shakespeare.

Charlie has written, produced and performed in a number of shows, most recently taking his own play “Rock Bottom” to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it received rave five-star reviews. He is also one of the founders of “Fresh Life Theatre”, a company that reimagines classical texts and introduces new talents to the drama industry.

Tonight, on 20 October, Charlie is performing in the Vesta Tilley Studio, part of  Worcester Theatres, in “MILKED” a black comedy written by Simon Longman. About the play, Charlie tells us “Two mates find a dying cow in a field, and set about trying to...deal with it. A funny and moving black comedy about friendship, unemployment and a cow called Sandy”. Remembering his RGS days and experiences with drama here at School, Charlie says “Everyone in the Drama department was fantastic, they really set me up to go on and do what I wanted to do. It was such an important time for me.". 

Dircetor of Drama at RGS Worcester, Jilly Witcomb, talks of Charlie’s career and successes saying, “Charlie is deserving of his success! I first met Charlie as he started Lower Sixth and his drive and determination to be on stage was second to none - nothing was going to stop him! This hard work has been rewarded and I am very proud of what he has already achieved and look forward to all that the future will bring."

A huge well done to Charlie. If you would like to watch “MILKED”, or to find out more about the show, you can do so here
