Hereford Sixth Form College students gain places with the National Youth Theatre

Posted on 2nd July 2020

A workshop with the National Youth Theatre

In January, students of the Performing Arts Academy auditioned for the National Youth Theatre. The audition included working together as an ensemble and performing their prepared monologue to the audition panel.

After months of wait, it has been announced that Bella Francis and Jake Harris have been successful in their audition.

The National Youth Theatre discovers, develops and platforms exceptional performers and theatre technicians aged 14-25 from across the country. Prestigious alumni include; Dame Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Colin Firth and Orlando Bloom.

This is a fantastic achievement for these two incredibly talented students who have a very bright future ahead of them.

Hereford Sixth Form College prepares a large number of students for the National Youth Theatre; this strong relationship means that students are able to audition at the College rather than at a regional audition centre. The College has a significantly high success rate for National Youth Theatre auditions and this reflects the dedication of Performing Arts Academy students and the quality of the training they receive.

The Performing Arts Academy gives students who wish to enter the performance industry a bespoke acting coaching program delivered in one lesson a week. The Academy offers many opportunities working alongside the top Performance schools in the country, giving students experience of the audition process and a flavour for each school and the courses they offer.

There are few spaces remaining for the Performing Arts Academy for September 2020 entry. Those who would like to apply, please email lsw@hereford.ac.uk.

 All applications must be made before 1st September.
