An Alford student is on course to fulfil her dream of a stage career.
Charlotte Metcalfe, 18, has landed a coveted place at the MGA Academy of Performing Arts in Edinburgh.
She will embark on a full-time, three-year HND musical theatre course at the academy this summer after impressing staff during an intensive audition.
The young student has set her sights on carving out a career on stage.
She said: “Ultimately, I would like to work as a performer on tours and cruises. My dream is to be cast in Phantom Of The Opera or Rock Of Ages.”
Charlotte attended Alford Academy and Monymusk and Alford primary schools. She was a member of Aberdeen Youth Musical Theatre.
