DSL Award Winners 2022

AwardsWe are pleased to announce the award-winners of the 2022 academic year!

The first Jim Piddock Screen Acting award was presented to Andrew Harmon-Gray, BA (Hons) in Professional Acting

“Andrew Harmon-Gray's performance in his screen monologue is compelling, transformative and brave. His work throughout his time at DSL has been exemplary - a tremendously talented and committed young actor. We are delighted to present him with this screen award” 

The Maggie Ollerenshaw Prize for Comedy Acting was awarded to Wen Zhou, MFA in Professional Acting with Independent Production

“Wen has natural comic timing.  She is a wizard at finding the comic potential in a scene.  She can play the innocent clown or the witty sophisticate.  In short she can mine comedy where you didn’t even see it existed until she demonstrates it to you.  At the same time she remains a generous ensemble player letting all other actors find their funny bones.   And most importantly her revelling in the delight and joy of the comedy provides delight and joy for her audience.”

The first Terry Hands Award for Classical Acting was presented to Charlie Sheepshanks, 1 Year Diploma in Professional Acting.

“Charlie Sheepshanks is the very first ever recipient of the Terry Hands Classical Acting Prize.  Charlie demonstrated a passion and commitment to classical text and a sensitivity and flair in performance.  His versatility with complex language combined with vocal technique greatly impressed directors who all acknowledged his talent and dynamic stage presence.  There is an old school belief that great careers are built on great voices and Charlie has demonstrated this potential” 

We were fortunate to welcome Maggie Ollerenshaw and Jim Piddock to our Class of 2022 Celebration to present the awards to the well deserving recipients.

Congratulations to Andrew, Wen and Charlie, and to the Class of 2022. We are looking forward to watching what you do next.
