SLT Youth Drama were delighted to welcome local South Londoner, Jamael Westman, the lead actor in the musical Hamilton, to a Q & A session.
13 of our Youth Theatre members aged between 12 and 18 met with Jamael and ask questions about his journey into acting, his motivation and role models.
Jamael was a fantastic guest who inspired the young people to be ‘curious‘ , to look after their physical health and ‘just try things out, don’t worry about looking silly‘.
The session was planned for one hour but there was so much to discuss that Jamael stayed for an hour and a half.
Due to the success of this Q and A, we will be planning more in the future. If you know of an actor or anyone involved in theatre who would be willing to come and talk to the young people, please contact Teresa training@southlondontheatre.
