Talented actors at Wisbech’s Thomas Clarkson Academy are gearing up to take part in a national youth theatre festival.
Drama teacher Julie Wilcox has won a bursary for the academy to take part in the National Theatre Connections Programme. Pupils will be assigned a play to perform at The Garage Theatre, Norwich, in May.

Mrs Wilcox said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for our students as they will get to perform a new play by one of the country’s top playwrights.”
