Congratulations to Year 8 student, Tuvya Balogun-Williams, who has secured a role playing the young and mischievous Richard, Duke of York, in Richard III at the prestigious Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Tuvya, who recently played the lead role of Troy Bolton in the BWA production of High School Musical on Stage, will be sharing the role with two other actors and rehearsals are well under way, with the show going live from 23rd June to 8th October 2022.
He said, ‘I've been acting for two years now and it was my primary school teacher who inspired me to become an actor because she told me I would do an amazing job. I am currently in an acting group called Casting Kids and I am looking forward to performing the show and meeting the other people working alongside me. As well as being an aspiring actor I also enjoy playing football and hope to become very successful at one of them or maybe even both!’
