Saturday 14 April 2012

Harry as Nigel in SH's Adrian MoleFollowing auditions in January and February, Harry Al-Adwani (SH IV) has been offered a place both at the National Youth Theatre and Youth Music Theatre-UK.

The National Youth Theatre boasts many famous alumni including such names as Judi Dench, Daniel Craig and Sir Ben Kingsley to name but a few and the audition process is particularly difficult. Harry is one of only 500 young people aged 14 to 21 in the country to be offered a place this year and he will now remain a member of NYT until he is 21.

Harry played the part of Nigel in the School House adaptation of Adrian Mole last term; he also played a lead role in last year's Junior School Play The Mignonette, and was in the Senior School Play Henry V last Michaelmas Term.

Harry has a very busy summer ahead. He will be performing in 2 musical shows for Youth Music Theatre-UK - one at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, and the other in Edinburgh - and he is also doing a two week course at the National Youth Theatre.
