Introducing one of our Young Ambassadors, Georgia Warlow!

Hello, lovely people!

I’m Georgia and I’m going to be letting you know a little bit about myself and what I’ve been up to with Theatr na nÓg and beyond. So, grab yourself a cuppa and I won’t keep you for too long, I promise.

For those of you who know that ‘cold clammy hand panic’ you get after graduation, yep. I’ve been there. That was me last year. I packed up my little room in Carmarthen, degree in hand, and pondered (cried) at the thought of what I’d do next.

I moved to Cardiff from the little bubble of Port Talbot, and heard about the Theatr na nÓg Ambassadors scheme through Daisy, one of the other Young Ambassadors. I went along to a meeting one day where I met Geinor and a couple of other Ambassadors. Not only did they feed me and supply me with lots of tea and coffee, but they were so friendly and welcoming. It was a really relaxed and informal day, where we all got to know one another and discussed what our aims were for the future (scary…) It was so reassuring to be chatting to people who were in a similar position as myself, and we were all split up in to groups and had to form our own unique theatre company and ‘pitch’ it to everyone else. I came away from that day with a real sense of ‘I can.’ They took away that post graduation panic and replaced it with a supportive hub with plenty of upcoming opportunities.

From there, I went along to some of the rehearsals for TOM, which was really interesting. Especially as an actor, walking in to a dress rehearsal with a room full of so much talent, I felt like a child in a sweet shop. It was incredible to see the show go from a rehearsal room to the stage at the Welsh Millennium Centre, and to see how much work goes on behind the scenes.

I had loads of fun representing Theatr na nÓg at the show in Cardiff (we had t-shirts and everything.) We mingled and chatted with the audience before and after the show, and there was just a real sense of community from everyone.

Alongside the work I’ve been doing with na nÓg, I also participated in the Young Artist Festival at The Other Room theatre this summer in Cardiff and I am also an usher there. I’m a bit of a geek and you can usually find me with my head in a play, so of course I’m in my element there.

I’m also currently on tour with a new one woman show called ‘Greville’s Whore’ and am playing Lady Emma Hamilton before she met Horatio Nelson. I’m having such a brilliant time on this production and I learn something new every time I do a show!

Okay, enough about me… Theatr na nÓg have a lot of exciting stuff coming up, with lots of practical opportunities for Ambassadors such as directing, acting and stage managing. I’m really excited to be involved with their upcoming projects, and YOU should be too!
