What do you do?
I am in my second year at Arden School of Theatre studying musical theatre.

What shows/training did you take part in at Theatre Royal Wakefield and when?
I took part in a carousel work placement and as part of Performance Academy Pontefract I performed in the Academy Opening in 2013 as well as Wakefield Youth Music Theatre’s Flashdance (2012), What’s the Buzz (2013), Oliver! (2014) and Jesus Christ Superstar (2016).

How did being involved with Theatre Royal Wakefield make a difference?
Performance Academy helped me develop my skills as a performer, especially in dance. It was one of the first steps on the ladder to where I wish to be in the future, so without it I wouldn’t be where I am today. Performing in Theatre Royal Wakefield has given me valuable experience in professional rehearsals and performing to a large audience.
