Selina Jones, a student on our Level 3 Drama course, has won a place at one of the most prestigious drama schools in the UK, LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art).

The oldest conservatoire for drama in the UK, LAMDA is arguably the number one place for acting training, with alumni including famous names like Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sam Claflin and Ruth Wilson.

One of thousands of young hopefuls who applied to the school this year, Selina went through a gruelling three-month audition and interview process to win her place. This included preparing five different monologues, learning script for scene work, and participating in two days of acting, movement and voice workshops.

In addition to LAMDA, Selina has received offers on competitive courses at four other institutions including the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. She says: “The auditions have been terrifying but also amazing, and my tutor Karla Ptacek has helped me at every step of the way.”

Selina follows in the footsteps of former Lewisham Southwark College student Leah Ferguson, who also won a place at LAMDA a few years ago. Having recently graduated, Leah has just completed a tour to New York with an all-female production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest after a successful autumn run at London’s Donmar Warehouse.

Tutor Karla Ptacek says: “We expect great things from Selina, Leah and all the many other graduates of Lewisham Southwark College Drama who are busy forging their careers in the performing arts industry.”
