A YOUTH theatre group has been selected to perform on one of London's most prestigious stages.

The Youth Theatre from The Churchill, Bromley will present their Heartbreak Beautiful play at the National Theatre in July during its festival for young people.

It will be performed at the Olivier Theatre, the largest of the three within The National Theatre on London's South Bank.

Churchill Creative Development Manager Liam Shea, who also co-directed Heartbreak Beautiful, said the Youth Theatre members are delighted about the news.

He said: "The chance to perform at The Churchill is a great experience for these budding performers, but to act onstage at the National is an amazing opportunity for any actor and therefore a huge achievement for the 22 young people involved.

"We are committed to nurturing the talent of tomorrow and this opportunity is testament to that."

The Churchill's youth group, which has members aged between 14 and 18, performed the play on The Churchill's main stage last month.

Written by Christopher William Hill, it was specially commissioned by the National Theatre as part of its New Connections project.

l Heartbreak Beautiful will be performed for one night only on July 7 at 8pm. For tickets visit www.nationaltheatre.org.uk.
