IT’S a dream come true for Fliss Crossley-Pritchard.
The 18-year-old actress will soon be winging her way to the Globe Theatre in London as part of the Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand (SGCNZ) Young Shakespeare Company. She is one of 24 New Zealand students who will travel to London in July.
Crossley-Pritchard said she had been doing drama since she was 4 years old.
“It has always been something I feel comfortable going back to. Shakespeare, in particular, is a love of mine because it is so much fun to work with and I feel it helps me grow as a person.
“Drama has been a passion of mine throughout the years,” she said.
“Our SGCNZ Young Shakespeare Company will perform, learn and train together in London. I’m very excited and looking forward to that. The dream came true.”
Crossley-Pritchard is part of the Unscene Theatre, Invercargill’s Improv group, which will perform on Friday to raise funds for her trip to London.
Organiser Jade Gillies said it would be something different for the audience.
“The team basically play games and act based on suggestions from the audience. It’s a lot of fun to do and even more fun to watch,” he said.
Unscene Theatre: Improv Night, Friday, May 26, 8pm at Repertory House, cnr Jed and Esk Sts. Adults $10, students $5.
