Success for KYSPA at BBC Auditions!

KYSPA was approached by BBC Scotland to find some 5 & 6 year olds to audition for the popular Cbeebies show "Nina and the Neurons". Obviously, KYSPA's normal membership is a bit older than that, so some quick phone calls were required to locate some younger actors!

In the event, five youngsters auditioned and two from Falmouth were successful. The programme on waves was filmed earlier this week. This is not the first occasion that KYSPA has been asked to find young actors for extra parts in films and we will be looking at how we can develop this service over the next year.

The opportunity to get involved in working on professional products is really exciting and we hope there will be more such opportunities for our members soon.
