Summer Term 2017

Drama Success

We are very pleased to be able to announce that following auditions held in the Ogstoun Theatre back in February, three of our Year 13 students have been offered places with the National Youth Theatre.

Flora, Imogen and Zoe are heading for the National Youth Theatre

Over 5000 young people aged 14-25 audition for the coveted places on the NYT summer courses each year, so it's a huge well done to Flora de la M, Imogen de CG  and Zoe K who will be spending almost a month of the summer working with industry professionals down in London. Upon completing the course they will become members of the National Youth Theatre.

Alumni of the NYT include Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Colin Firth, Daniel Day-Lewis, Orlando Bloom, Catherine Tate, Ben Kingsley, Ashley Jensen, Derek Jacobi, Timothy Dalton, David Walliams, Matt Lucas, Hugh Bonneville, Matt Smith, Zawe Ashton, Chiwetel Ejiofor and many more.

Joe Duggan from the National Youth Theatre said; “Following the success of the NYT auditions at Gordonstoun in February 2017, we will be returning in February 2018 and hope to attract lots of applicants from the North of Scotland.  Our website has more details about the auditions we will be holding around the country next year.”
