National Youth Theatre

A Liverpool student is following in the footsteps of some of the nation’s most talented actors after being accepted into the National Youth Theatre.

Ellis, a 15-year-old pupil at Archbishop Beck Catholic College, won a place at the theatre out of thousands of young people who auditioned.

Ellis, from Walton, Liverpool, travelled to Salford in February for group and individual auditions, performing a monologue from A Midsummers Night Dream. Ellis will travel to London in August for a two week intensive two Drama Course.

Ellis said, "I’m hoping to go into acting when I am older because that’s what I have always loved doing. It is a real honour to be part of this unique group and I am also very grateful to Archbishop Beck for all their support and encourage. I’m still in shock for it all really, it’s just amazing.”
