Actors return to Alleyn's

Tom Glenister (Tulley's 2014) & Zrey Sholapurkar (Brown's 2019) return to Alleyn’s.

Hosted by Mr Piper, Director of Drama, Tom Glenister (Tulley's 2014) & Zrey Sholapurkar (Brown's 2019) returned to Alleyn’s to share their stories and experiences of applying to drama school. Speaking to current year 12 and 13 students, the two actors told their stories of how they had gone from playing a mushroom in an eco-friendly play at Alleyn’s (Tom) and playing Julius Caesar (Zrey) to securing places at drama school.

They shared brilliant advice, encouraging current Alleyn’s student to ‘find the school which works for you and fits you’ and to ‘be open, say yes and give in to the ridiculousness.’

A big thank you to Tom and Zrey for coming back and giving back.
