FIVE STARS: Beaumont School in St Albans celebrate success with the National Youth Theatre

 Published on: 11th May 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Uncategorized

For the third consecutive year Beaumont students are celebrating success following the National Youth Theatre auditions hosted by the school. 

On the 13 January 2020, NYT associates auditioned 26 students at the school.  

Students spent the morning involved in a three-hour workshop and during the afternoon each had an individual interview and performed a monologue. 

This year, five Beaumont students have been offered places with the company: Jaya Barker, Luke Nixon, Jessica Payne, Chloe Prince and Ruari Spooner who all study Drama GCSE or A level Drama and Theatre at Beaumont. 

These students will all be taking part in online classes over summer as the NYT have had to cancel their usual summer residential courses. 

Head of Drama, Lynsey Wallace said: “We are proud of our ongoing relationship with the National Youth Theatre and the wonderful opportunities it offers our students. 

“The audition process is valuable for all our students as they gain experience working with professional theatre makers. We are thrilled that we have such a large number of successful students this year.”
