Ava secures Melb Theatre Co position

 

 

 

Budding thespian Ava Govanstone, 16, has received the opportunity of a lifetime, securing a position with the Melbourne Theatre Company as a youth ambassador. The year 11 student was one of 12 students selected across Victoria to participate in the MTC program, which sees them meet up once a month to watch, review and discuss a stage show. Students will also have access to actors, producers, directors and stage crew where they will provide rare behind the scenes insights to the industry.The Portland Secondary College student is overjoyed about the opportunity, which came with a little encouragement.

"My drama teacher, Mr Elijah, approached me at the start of the year to see if I was interested. I had previously applied to do a workshop with MTC, and while I missed out, they did remember me."Every month I get to go to Melbourne, attend lectures from actors, stage managers, costume creators and lighting crew, which is great because we get to look at all aspects of performance."My drama teacher is excited and expects me to bring back plenty of stories. "Ava hopes the highly sought after ambassadorship will provide more opportunities for her once she finishes year 12, as she aims to secure a position at National Institute of Dramatic Art in Kensington, NSW.
