Cara gains place at RADA

cara&neilSibford School pupil, Cara Mattinson, has been awarded a place at the prestigious RADA Young Actors Summer School 2016.

Sixteen-year-old Cara will be studying two modules: Exploring Shakespeare, which will include working on scenes, monologues and sonnets as well as voice, movement and stage fighting; and Contemporary Text, where she will examine how the world is reflected in contemporary writing for the modern theatre.

The RADA Summer School provides young actors with an experience of a leading British drama school and illuminates the distinction between drama as it is taught at school and as a vocational training.

Cara, who hopes to do a university degree in Drama/English before applying to attend RADA full-time said: “It’s been my ambition to get into the RADA Summer School and I’m really happy to have the privilege of being able to go in 2016.”

Added Sibford’s Head of Drama, Neil Madden: “There was very stiff competition for this placement, therefore we are delighted that Cara’s application was successful. It will be a great opportunity for her to learn more about the craft of acting and will be a good preparation for her future plans.”

2016 promises to be an exciting year for Cara. Next term she is starring as The Wicked Witch of the West in Sibford School’s production of The Wizard of Oz.

The popular musical will be performed at the school from 9 – 11 February 2016 with a special production for local primary schools on 8 February.
