The Amanda Roocroft Theatre is located at Runshaw College’s Leyland campus. It is a 128 seat space hosting a number of dance, drama and musical theatre productions each year with a student cast and produced by staff all of whom have experience of working in professional venues and productions.
Amanda Roocroft has secured an international reputation as one of Britain’s most exciting singers, in opera, concert, and in recital. Originally from Chorley, she attended Runshaw College between 1982-84 and graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music.
In concert Amanda has appeared with leading orchestras throughout Europe and North America and has performed at many of the world’s leading opera houses and festivals including the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Glyndebourne Festival, the English National Opera, the Welsh National Opera, the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, the Netherlands Opera and the Salzburg Festival.
The theatre is named after her both in recognition of her outstanding achievements and as an inspiration to our students to follow their dreams.
