National Theatre success for Dan!

Many congratulations to Daniel Owen (Y13) who this summer attended a National Youth Theatre junior course at Goldsmiths University in London.

Dan auditioned in March and out of 6000 students nationwide who auditioned, he was one of only 300 selected to attend the course.

Dan says “I signed up to live in student accommodation at Goldsmiths for two weeks whilst completing the course. The two weeks were an absolutely incredible experience, I met so many different people from different backgrounds and cultures and it changed my perspective on a lot of things. As an aspiring actor, the course helped me so much in terms of my development, and I learnt so many new skills and techniques that I will no doubt utilise as I continue to grow.  The course was life changing for me, and I would with complete confidence recommend it to any aspiring young actor, or just to anyone who has a passion for the arts”.

Well done Dan, from all of us at Chesterfield High School we are so very proud of you! #Chesterfield365
