Young Actor of the Year - drama competition

Senior School, Nursery and Prep School, Performing Arts

The Senior Drama department hosted their first live streamed event of the Autumn term with our annual Young Actor of the Year Final. This year, we were excited to welcome students from our Prep School for the first time; every performance was of an extremely high standard and I was bowled over by the level of maturity, energy and professionalism on display, especially from the younger years. The evening was adjudicated by three industry professionals, including two Royal High Alumnae:

The judges were truly impressed by the level of talent on display and the wide variety of monologue choices that students had found and prepared independently. After some lengthy deliberation, the judges awarded the prizes below:

  • Year 5-7 category: Hettie, Year 6
  • Year 8-9 category: Minna, Year 9
  • Year 10-13 category: Poppy, Year 11
  • Overall winner: Posy, Year 8

Congratulations to all the students involved! From the performers themselves, to our wonderful team of student technicians, and of course our encouraging and inspiring Judges.

Mrs Ishani Thorpe, Head of Drama
