A talented pupil from Edge Grove School in Radlett is set to perform in a starring role in the hit West End musical School of Rock.
Having attended many auditions, Dylan Mynett, 10, from Watford, landed the role of Freddy Hamilton, the drummer in the School of Rock band, which he alternates with two other young actors.
Dylan’s mother, Yvonne Mynett, said: “We are over the moon about Dylan’s West End debut and are immensely proud of his success and musical achievements both in and outside of school.
“Dylan started playing the drums when he was just six years old and has always been a natural entertainer and performer.
“His wonderful sense of humour and endearing charm means he also has a genuine affinity with the ‘cheeky chappy’ persona of Freddy’s character.”
Ben Evans, headmaster at Edge Grove School, commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Dylan and we are very proud of the relentless energy and resilience he has shown.
“As a prep school, we are also committed to ensuring that children like Dylan are given the chance to shine and showcase their talents.”
Dylan has been rehearsing hard and said he very excited about his upcoming performance in the hit Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.
Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school.
