    Story

    Out of 5000 applicants, I have successfully been accepted into the National Youth Theatre (NYT) in London!

    The National Youth Theatre is a world-leading youth arts organisation, aimed at developing exceptional performers aged 14-25, giving them a platform for success. Some of their prestigious alumni include: Dame Helen Miren, Daniel Craig, Colin Firth, Orlando Bloom, Matt Smith, and Catherine Tate.

    So how did this all happen? Let me get you up to speed!

    I found my love for drama at Willetton Senior High School in 2008, and went on to study performance at Curtin University. At both schools I was awarded for my outstanding skill and contribution. In Perth I established a start to my career; developing and performing in sold out Fringe shows, performing at The Blue Room Theatre, Her Majesties Theatre, and working for the State Theatre Company.

    In October 2016 I moved to London to develop my skills and career prospects. Since then I have been proactively seeking opportunities and experiences. My weeks are spent working two part time jobs, building my portfolio, applying for auditions, and volunteering at a North London theatre. It's been up and down since day dot. Progress is hard. But I've kept pushing - and I'm loving it.

    In February 2017 I found NYT online. I learned a short monologue, and started rehearsing. Gradually rediscovering my confidence, I gave the audition my best shot. It wasn't until a night in mid May that I received an email telling me I had been successful!

    So, what am I asking from you?

    Being a developing artist who is financially independent makes an opportunity like this difficult to pursue. The NYT course runs 6 days/wk for a month - putting me out of work, and making living precarious. By giving anything you are able to give, you can help me accept my offer by covering a portion of the £989 course fee. Your generosity will make my goal a reality, so I can follow in the footsteps of the artists who came before me.

    Thank you.

      I'm over whelmed with everyone's support after one day of fund raising! There are still 28 days to go! You're all so kind and all have a special place in my heart. I'm gradually spreading the word myself, but please continue to share the page with anyone you like. Thank you again, your generosity is astronomical! I hope that one day I can repay you with the favour!
