Inside View from Olivia

Meet Olivia, who is in her first year of the Junior Conservatoire Musical Theatre course. Sunday is literally her favourite day of the week and she travels from Edinburgh to Glasgow, and then walks to our Wallace Studios at Speirs Locks to study her true passion. Olivia’s day is busy with dance classes, choral class and learning new songs and scripts.
