Mayfield Girls Join National Theatre Companies

Two Mayfield actors have been selected to join the National Youth Theatre and the Globe Youth Theatre

Eliza in Year 9 (shown in the recent production of ‘The Witches' at Mayfield School) has been accepted into the Globe Youth Theatre. She joins fellow Mayfield girls Erin and Ioanna who are also currently attending. Eliza attends the company every Saturday to train. She says, "At the Globe we are currently focusing on the play 'Julius Caesar'. I enjoy working with people who are older than me and everyone is very nice. We normally do a warm-up,  an improvisational game and then we work on a script. We have half an hour to practise with a partner and then we show the rest of the group our work". 

In January, the Drama Department hosted a workshop followed by an audition for 10 Mayfield students by the National Youth Theatre. This prestigious company has a long list of notable alumnae who feature heavily in British theatre, film and television. These include names such as Dame Helen Mirren, Orlando Bloom, Colin Firth and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The National Youth Theatre has informed Year 11 Yaa that she has been successful at audition and has invited her to join. Year 12 Issy has qualified for the reserves list and will find out if she is invited in due course. 

Yaa said, "I am so excited to be a part of this and to engage in the promising courses that they have to offer for aspiring young actors and actresses. I hope to one day become an actress and I believe this is a step in the right direction".

The Drama Department would like to congratulate all those that auditioned, as it is challenging. Well done to Issy and Yaa for their accomplishments.
