CAPA is excellent.

I go to one of the Sheffield over 18 groups and it was one of my first experiences of acting when the academy began in 2010. I have learnt so much and CAPA has helped me so much on stage.

If you're thinking of joining I would seriously consider CAPA.

Good luck to everyone starting at he new Barnsley Academy! We should have some inter-academy performances!
