Drama student aims for The Globe in London

Year 13 student Isabella Creemers is in with a chance to perform at the Globe Theatre in London after winning a direct entry to Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand’s National Shakespeare Schools Production (NSSP).

Izzy received outstanding feedback from judges following the regional competition, including comments like “marvellous, outstanding,” and “natural acting ability and looks so comfortable on stage.”

Next weekend she will head to Wellington for the NSSP.

NSSP is a week-long theatre-intensive especially devised for Shakespearean devotees. It enables students to learn more about the Bard and his works; familiarise themselves with the ins and outs of the theatre; hone their theatre and film composing and designing skills, and gain valuable, life-long lessons.

From there, 24 students will be selected to travel to London to perform at the Globe Theatre.

Drama teacher Jo Winslade said Izzy has always been heavily involved with Drama at ACG Parnell College – receiving top marks in her AS Drama course, playing the lead role of Annie in this year’s musical and participating in this year’s senior Drama Club production.

She aims to pursue acting and musical theatre at university next year.

Good luck, Izzy!
