Success Story

Richard Meek

Performing Arts

Richard Meek studied performing arts at the College of West Anglia, before going onto become a successful actor. Richard has performed at the London Fringe and toured with Give My Regards to Broadway, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and The Rocky Horror Show (including the internationally broadcast live anniversary simulcast, where he played Eddie and Dr. Scott).

Richard said: “My memories of CWA are all fun ones, new and exciting experiences and a feeling of freedom to learn and develop myself in a way I'd not been able to before. All my best friends at college are still my best friends now, I'm godfather to two classmate’s children and I live with my best friend from college too. Without CWA I wouldn't have gotten anywhere in my career, a Norfolk boy dreaming of being an actor/singer with no real output. Studying at CWA was a life saver for me, enabling me to generate an amazing base of skills to get me into my dream career.”
