Celebrating the Young Actors Company with the Jack Petchey Foundation

On Monday October 15 we recognised the special achievements of three young actors… and one outstanding leader.

WCTT’s Young Actors Company is a proud participant in the Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Awards.

We nominate three of our members, one from each Act, for an award each year.

This year’s deserved winners were George (Act 3), Josh (Act 2) and Emma (Act 1).

The winners were invited to participate in a Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Awards event at the Polka Theatre on Monday 15 October, along with schools and clubs from across the borough of Merton: awards were also presented to young people from Ricards Lodge High School, Rutlish School, Raynes Park High, Ursuline High, Harris Academies Merton and Morden, Cricket Green School, Perseid School, Smart Centre, Wimbledon College, Merton College, Graveney School and the Woodland Folk.

The awards were presented to the winners by Councillor Geraldine Stanford, the deputy mayor of Merton.

There wasn’t an empty seat in the theatre as many parents and friends came along to applaud these outstanding achievers.

And this year’s awards were made extra special as Andy Alty, our creative producer, was presented with an Outstanding Leader Award in gratitude for all his hard work at the Young Actors Company over the last seven years.

Three cheers for Andy – and massive congratulations to you all!
