Ian Mbugua, Sauti Sol's Chimano and Mkamzee Mwatela land lucrative deals
Celebrated UK Theatre Director, Stuart Nash, has set sail in scarcely explored waters. After living in East Africa for a while, he saw a lack of opportunity for students and adults to be able to develop a talent in acting, dancing or singing. Thus the Nairobi Performing Arts Studio was born bringing these 3 disciplines under one roof for the first time in Kenya.
Courses are taught by acclaimed professionals in the music, theatre, film and TV industries including professors and tutors from Kenyatta University, Sauti Academy and Kenya Conservatoire of Music.
NPAS also offers Master Classes by celebrated actors, singers, directors and choreographers, including Ian Mbugua – Directing/Acting; Willis Austin Chimano (Sauti Sol) – Singing, Edwin Odhiambo (Judge Edu) – Dance/Choreography; Mkamzee Mwatela (Acting).
NPAS director, Stuart has also announced his partnership with Kenya National Theatre and The Kenya Conservatoire of Music to bring the world renown musical, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR slated for staging on APRIL 7TH - 17TH 2017 and five other musicals throughout 2017-2018.
