These photos capture some moments which really warmed my heart! My Letchworth young actors have been a small group for a few years now and this term, seven committed students have made the leap from youth theatre to young actors. I know this is a big deal for all of them because young actors are considered to be the top of the tree! I put myself in their shoes and I know that the 15 year old me would put off moving up for as long as possible- but if you asked me why I didn't want to move up, I probably wouldn't be able to give you a reason!
I can't express enough how warm and friendly and keen to engage all of these students were when we played this 'getting to know you' game. They spent 30 seconds speaking to each other before moving on and in that time they surprised themselves with how much they had in common or how different each person was from how they perhaps perceived them.
It was an absolute joy to behold. To be honest every young actors class is a joy but I don't want to gush too much!!!
Thank you lovely young ladies and gents. You give me hope and fill me with pride!
Lots of love,
