STUDENTS from Waterlooville are set to perform at the National Theatre.

South Downs College BTEC Level 3 extended diploma acting students are going to perform The Wardrobe, written by Sam Holcroft, on Thursday, July 3 at the National Theatre Connections Festival.

The National Theatre Connections Festival is an annual festival of new plays for young performers.

It will run from Wednesday, July 2 until Monday, July 7.

Over the past three months, 10 plays have been premiered across the UK by 230 schools and youth theatre companies in 26 leading regional theatres.

A total of 10 of those companies have been invited to perform their productions at the National Theatre on London’s South Bank.

Principal Lyn Surgeon said she is proud of the students’ achievement.

‘I am incredibly proud of the talent and commitment of our students and the support given from the dedicated staff that have put time and effort into this. It’s an exceptional achievement.’
