Tom, a drama student at a Teignbridge school, received a letter recently that many young drama students dream about: “Thank you for auditioning for the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain (NYT). I am delighted to tell you that you’ve been successful and we would like to offer you a place on a NYT acting course this summer, between Wednesday 15th August and Saturday 25th August 2012, inclusive.
This year we auditioned over 4,600 young people in 20 auditions centres across the UK and you are one of just 500 who have been selected. The standard of talent was exceptional this year and we received a record amount of applications, so you should be incredibly proud of your achievement.”
What an achievement! Tom successfully applied to The Helen Foundation for a bursary to help with the considerable costs of attending the summer course and he will be in London this summer. We look forward to hearing from Tom after his course.
