Lydia Holford is preparing for her interview to study Stage Management at RADA and LAMDA, both top drama schools.
The 17 year old is on track to achieving triple distinction star in her studies, the highest possible grade. She has high aspirations to enter a career in the West End.
She said: “I’ve always enjoyed being a part of this industry and have worked at Middlesbrough Theatre since the age of 15 in a variety of roles including set production and sound management.
“The favourite aspect of my course is working on live shows and learning the set up. I loved being part of The Man Who Fell to Earth, which was based on songs by David Bowie.
