“What does the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School mean to me? Absolutely everything.”-Pete Postlethwaite
I am heading off to England on scholarship to study at the acclaimed school opened by Sir Laurence Olivier: The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. I am one of 14 people (one of six women) to be accepted into the international program where I will be working towards a Certificate in Professional Studies. I will be joining the ranks of Jeremy Irons, Sir Patrick Stewart, Pete Postlethwaite, Miranda Richardson, Gene Wilder, Olivia Williams, Mark Strong, Daniel Day Lewis and many other accomplished performers. In this rigorous program I will be training close to 10 hours a day/5 days a week, culminating in a fully mounted production at the Old Vic Studio, attached to the oldest repertory theatre in England. I can’t wait to meet and work with this company of actor from all over the world in Canada, Norway, New Zealand, Australia, and of course the UK, and begin this incredible journey.
