Nicholas Antoniou-Tibbitts, 11, who attends Bedazzle performing arts, has been offered a place at the Sylvia Young Theatre School and the five-year scholarship is worth £70,000.

Nicholas, who has been a student with Bedazzle for four years, has already been appearing on stage in the West End for more than a year.

Lisa Cureton and Tamara Lee Smart, principal directors at Bedazzle helped Nicholas prepare for his audition.

Lisa said: “We knew Nicholas had the talent to attend and we are so proud that our student has been awarded this fantastic scholarship.

“Nicholas had to prepare a solo monologue, dance and song for his audition.

“Nicholas says he is both shocked but excited to start in September, and cannot wait to embark in the full time training.”
