Youngster gets ready for West End spell

Have your say

A YOUNG actor has been accepted into the UK’s premier youth theatre summer school.

Declan Robertson will make his debut this summer in West End Stage, which is for young people aged eight to 21.

Declan gained his interest in the performing arts at Giselle Academy of Dance and Theatre in London Road, where he is taught by Neil Mogridge.

Throughout the week, Declan will join other students at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

He will be put through his paces in singing, dance and drama, as well as taking part in industry-based workshops, led by West End stars.

The students will also be taken to the hit musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and will get the opportunity to question the cast during a private question-and-answer session.

Then they will have a masterclass led by some of the cast members.
