The National Youth Theatre inspires, trains, and showcases exceptional performers and theatre technicians aged 14-25. It is regarded by industry professionals, drama schools, and universities as one of the most prestigious organisations in the country for the training of young actors, and to be accepted is a great achievement.

Caitlin auditioned in February with almost 5,000 other actors between the ages of 15 and 21 and was one of only 500 to be accepted. She will now be attending a two week summer school in London and will be a member of the National Youth Theatre until she’s 21. Many acting opportunities should arise for Caitlin in the coming years with the NYT showcasing their talent on West End stages and at iconic sites both a home and abroad.

Head of Drama at Stamford School, Anneke Davies, said: “Caitlin is a talented and intuitive performer who is wholly committed to honing her craft. She has been involved in a number of school productions, including most recently The Golden Ticket and Les Misérables, where her dedication and enthusiasm have been invaluable.”
