National Youth Theatre Success for Four Students

Visual & Performing Arts

Congratulations to four of our Acting students who have secured places on the National Youth Theatre summer course.

Lewis Tipping (Bitterne Park School), Elle Stokes (Out of Area), Kerry Lockett (Brookfield Community School) and Grace Aluko (Cantell School) successfully achieved their places after auditioning through the Auditions Access Fund granted to Theatre for Life, Itchen’s resident theatre company.

The Auditions Access Fund is a programme supported by a grant of £37,500 from the National Youth Theatre, which enables students from 30 different schools and youth groups across the country to take part in free workshops and auditions for top London theatre schools and companies. Itchen, thanks to its partnership with Theatre for Life, is a regional centre for the National Youth Theatre.

Students who successfully audition through the National Youth Theatre at Itchen will also receive financial help to perform in London with the NYT, thanks to the Auditions Access Fund.
