3rd July 2019 — Congratulations to Talbot Heath student, Amber Smyth, for being accepted onto the National Youth Theatre course in London, this summer. The Lower Sixth pupil attended an audition in Chichester at the end of March, which consisted of a workshop with devising, followed by a performance monologue and interview. On hearing the news of her acceptance onto the NYT course, the 17-year-old said she was, ‘Overwhelmed, but very excited.’
The two week course begins at the end of July and will include ensemble and choral work, culminating in a performance for family and friends. Amber is a keen actress and has performed in a number of school productions including ‘Fame’, ‘Trojan Women’ and most recently as Nick Carraway in ‘The Great Gatsby’. Naturally, Theatre Studies is one of her A-Levels and Amber ultimately wishes to pursue a career in acting at drama school; we wish her every success for her future treading the boards.
