    Additional Information

    Merryn loves musical theatre as it gives her the opportunity to combine her music, movement and acting skills. As well as her youth theatre group, Merryn has attended Spotlight, a musical theatre school and Stagecoach, where she passed a Trinity College musical theatre exam. She recently played a lead role in a Spotlight Academy Christmas production.

    Merryn has skated 8 hours a week for 2 years, reaching NISA level skating after only a year. She has performed in two shows on ice and competed many times, winning gold once.

    Merryn has attended contemporary dance and ballet classes since she was 4 years old. She recently had the chance to interview Darcy Bussell in front of a theatre audience at the North Wall Theatre. Merryn regularly performs in Tac au Tac Dance Productions at the Pegasus Theatre in Oxford. She has also recently worked with acclaimed choreographer Kim Brandstrup on a research project which culminated in a performance with dancers from Ballet Rambert at the Jacqueline du Pre Theatre, Oxford.

    About me

    Merryn is intelligent, imaginative, highly articulate and loves people and animals. She has an unusual emotional maturity and an exceptional body awareness and confidence. Merryn is gregarious and loves to meet and chat with new people.

    Merryn is passionate about performing and works incredibly hard developing her acting and theatre skills as a member of the highly acclaimed Pegasus Youth Theatre Group. Merryn is relaxed and confident under pressure, always ready to take on board advice and criticism from others in order to improve her abilities. She takes direction very well and I always receive exceptional feedback from coaches and directors, not only about her talent on stage, but also how she helps to support and integrate other less confident members of the company or skating troupe.

    As Merryn is home-educated, her family are able to support her to follow all her passions which include: art, drama, ice-skating, acrobatics, dancing and much more. She is used to working with diverse groups of people and new situations and changes of routine do not faze her. As Merryn is not in school she is very flexible with her time, does not require leave and can be available at short notice.
