In February 2018, Lily (13) became the final musical theatre student to receive support from The Realising Dreams Foundation until later this year.
Our foundation is contributing towards weekly performing arts classes for the next few months in the hope it gives her the edge she needs to secure new roles.
Lily who has starred in Matilda The Musical and performed with the National Youth Theatre was struggling to meet the costs of weekly classes necessary to continue her training and complete her LAMDA exams. Her talent and success in Matilda won her a scholarship at Ipswich High School. And while she is an active performing in school shows, she doesn’t receive specialist performing arts training there.
Lily, like many other performing arts students, got a taste for treading the boards and is eager to win new roles in this highly competitive field.
