A bright future for Drama star

Congratulations to Year 12 Drama student Ryan Linton who recently received an amazing opportunity to participate in The Sport for Jove Young Mentorship program. 

“Ryan has been a dedicated student of Drama since arriving at IGS in 2020,” IGS English and Drama Teacher Megan Sampson said.

“This year he is sitting the HSC and has chosen performance for his Individual Major Work.”

Artistic Associate at Sport For Jove Francesca Savige said the company is thrilled to welcome Ryan as one of six mentees in their Youth Mentorship Program.

“He is an extremely talented young actor who we have enjoyed working with in our Youth Acting training over the past few years and have been proud to see his craft develop and his confidence,” Francesca said.

“We believe he is a performer to watch out for in the future and are keen to help him in this critical time of growth to nurture his talent.”

The mentorship program offers opportunities not only for the young actors to meet peers but also to network and work with diverse artists and role models who have experience in Shakespeare and in all aspects of the creative field from acting to directing, writing and producing.

The mentees will have the chance to participate in Sport for Jove’s Second Age Project Acting training classes and end of year summer show, with free-tuition as well as meeting once a month with guest professional artists from the industry.
