Young Actors Studio

Students from the college performed for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge this weekend, as the royal couple visited Cardiff and Pembrokeshire.

The pair visited the Valero refinery – the company that supports our Young Actors Studio in Pembrokeshire.

Harpist Megan Morris, flautist Alexandra Griffiths, and Jazz musicians James Clark, Pete Komor and Rod Oughton performed at a reception for guests

When the Royal couple arrived, they watched three students from the Pembrokeshire branch of our Young Actors Studio – Ben Bubb, Yasemin Ozdemir and Henry Whittaker – perform the pieces they are working on in their Audition Techniques classes.

Yasemin (main picture, above) performed a contemporary speech from Heidi Dekker’s The Eye of the Beholder for the couple.  She said: “It was an utterly surreal experience, a real once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It was such an honour to perform in front of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – an opportunity I may never get again and such a wonderful chance to showcase our talent.”
