Stage school hosts free auditions

ASPIRING actors and actresses have the chance to win an acting scholarship at a free audition on Sunday.

Top Hat Stage School is inviting six to 17-years-olds to attend an audition at the Hatfield Forum where 15 scholarships worth more than �900 each will be up for grabs.

The prize is to attend one of the theatre group’s five weekly stage schools in Hertfodshire – which includes Stevenage – each weekend from January to December next year and take part in dance, drama and singing lessons.

The same project last year saw 14-year-old Stevenage resident Mary-Fay Tita-Kuna win a place and has since starred in a CBBC TV programme Sadie Jones.

Applicants can register www.tophatstageschool.co.uk or just turn up for one of two sessions held from 10.30am to 12.30pm and 1pm to 3pm.
