National Youth Theatre Auditions

17 May 2019 | Posted In Drama

In March, we hosted National Youth Theatre auditions at SJF for our drama students aged 14 and above.  We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Iris Wall in Year 9 has been chosen to be in the National Youth Theatre and will be training and performing with the company in London this summer.  Iris has been chosen of one of 650 students from over 6000 who applied nationally, and is one of the youngest performers in the company.  This is a phenomenal opportunity for Iris and we pass on our warmest congratulations!  We will also be helping Iris fundraise for this opportunity and more details about this will follow.  Well done, Iris!
