Congratulations to senior Lamont Drama pupils Christie Clark and Steven Daley who have both been invited to join the prestigious National Youth Theatre.

The two are following in the footsteps of some great names from the world of theatre, TV and film. Former NYT members include Dame Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Colin Firth, David Walliams and Orlando Bloom.

Christie and Steven went through a gruelling audition process before securing their places and had to perform individually as well as taking part in a drama workshop. Nearly 5,000 youngsters were cut down to just over 500.

Christie and Steven,┬ásaid” We are absolutely delighted to become NYT members and are looking forward to performing and making new friends.”
