 'NWTAC delivers training for young people at the highest level, in a fun, safe and professional environment. My time with them gave me the discipline and foundations to further my training at full time drama school, without this foundation I would not be working now as a professional performer. Every day that I wake up and get to perform would not be possible without NWTAC and I am extremely grateful for that'.
