Our super talented Rebecca has won many awards this year for her storytelling, poetry reading and acting abilities but last night she won the most prestigious award possible- The proactive cup for Dramatic excellence at the Robin Hood outstanding performers evening.
Rebecca constantly works to a high level and never enters the studios unprepared. It really is wonderful to see her hard work paying off. When she performs Rebecca always engages 100% of her body, mind and face. This enables her to create believable, thought-provoking work. I see big things in this little girls future. Her teacher Miss Ruth, who works with Rebecca weekly on festival and LAMDA work adds "A massive well done to Rebecca for receiving an outstanding drama award and the Robin Hood outstanding performers concert. Rebecca works extremely hard every week in her LAMDA lessons and at the age of 13 is about to take her bronze verse and prose exam! Rebecca is committed to developing as a performer and is currently taking acting, verse and prose and public speaking exams. Rebecca commits to learning her pieces and theory questions and is eager to gain more knowledge of LAMDA and how to progress in voice work and acting. We are all extremely proud of you well done!"
Mum Lisa Leggott was also very proud of her incredible daughter's achievements, commenting "We are delighted for Rebecca to win this amazing award! She absolutely loves drama, she works so hard and really deserves this! We are all super proud!"

What a show! It took blood, sweat and tears. Our seniors worked liked professionals to pull off this incredible production. We were all so proud of you and the audiences loved it -
June Rutherford Fantastic, had relatives travel from London who had seen the professional show several times and they thought this was amazing. It looked so professional. It was worth all the backstage hard work, the hours of practice, the panic over scenery and costumes and of course the most important question on Friday evening. What flavour pizza will we be having for tea? Loved being part of the whole experience, well done everyone xxx
Lisa Leggott Wow! Let's Act you were all amazing! A first class production! X

We love to hear your feedback on our classes -
Lets Act has transformed my daughter from a shy quiet little girl to a confident performer. It has been a journey and pleasure as a parent to watch her development and confidence grow. Special friends and teachers make it a nurturing family environment. Thank you. Vicky Snowden Mum to Holly age 9 and Lucy age 5.
At Lets Act we have recently been working on our audition technique. Below is some feedback that I gave my students which any parents with aspiring actors may be interested in reading.
IMPORTANT FEEDBACK FROM AUDITIONS SO FAR -
Guys I am so impressed with your auditions this year! It is wonderful to see how much you have developed! One thing I did notice is that everyone needs to react to the character they are talking to when they are speaking. In life we listen - react - respond and acting is no different. I noticed that students were in character when speaking their lines but lost the character when they weren't speaking. Try to stay in character all the time. Put your focus on the character you are talking too instead of yourself and your lines.If you really listen to what the character you are talking to is saying it will help you to remember your lines as you are responding to what they are saying. This will make a big difference to your success at TV and commercial castings. The camera is very close on your face so you can't afford to have even a second where you aren't in character.
