Los Angeles, California (WiredPRNews.com) — In a new kind of attempt to steal the spotlight, 44 British students will make their debut on stage in front of famous casting directors and actors in a competition. The competition is organized by Spotlight, the largest actor’s firm in the UK. All the participants are students of reputed drama schools, all of which are members of the drama association of CDS (Conference of Drama Schools). All the participants have staved off stiff competition to get into this spot.
These students are the elite of their respective colleges and deemed as the best by their teachers and school authorities. It is not that easy to get into a drama school and one needs to be prodigal to make it. According to a report published by the CDS last year, the ratio of drama school applicants is almost 7 to 1.
There are many doubts about the success of these participants because acting is a profession in which almost 80 % of the actors make less than 10,000 pounds, or approximately $20,000 in a year.
The young actors in this competition will get an opportunity of 180 seconds to perform in front of a reputed panel of judges and showcase their talents. These three minutes of fame in front of the camera can be the most the monumental moments of the lives of these students which could change the course of their future. These students are already lucky to be chosen from the batch of the graduating students of drama schools, better than the rest of their colleagues.
