Three future stars from West Thames College are celebrating making it into the prestigious National Youth Theatre.
Pedro de Sousa (19), Hannah Ball (17), and Anton Jerome Phillips (19) are all on the National Diploma in Performing Arts at the Isleworth college and auditioned for the NYT in February along with 5000 other hopefuls – of which only 1000 were chosen.
The three will now attend a two-week workshop held at the University of Greenwich in August, helped with £500 sponsorship from the college.
“This is a great opportunity for all of us,” said Anton, from Hanwell. “The NYT are amazing for getting you auditions and putting on productions. We’re all really proud of our achievement and are also very grateful to the college for sponsoring us.”
Famous former members of the theatre include Daniel Craig, Dame Helen Mirren and Orlando Bloom.
