MTC Ambassador – Lisette Wilkinson
Congratulations to Year 11 student Lisette Wilkinson has been selected as one of the 2022 Melbourne Theatre Company (MTC) Ambassadors.
The MTC Ambassadors Program is an enrichment program for students with a passion for the performing arts, and provides opportunities for young artists to watch live theatre, to engage with industry professionals, and to meet like-minded peers from schools all across Victoria.
To be considered for the program, a student must be nominated by their teacher; and each school may only nominate one Year 11 student per year. A submission is made regarding the student’s participation in the school performing arts program, their performing arts studies and, most importantly, their ability to maximise the Ambassadorial experience on a personal level as well as to share their learning with peers. Lisette has consistently contributed to the Performing Arts Learning Area at our college since her enrolment in Year 7 – not only performing in junior and whole-school productions, but actively assuming responsibilities ‘behind the scenes’ with preparation and promotion of the arts. As she has risen through ‘the ranks’, Lisette has helped to guide junior students through the (sometimes daunting!) production process and been an exemplary role model to all involved.
Lisette’s inclusion in the prestigious MTC Ambassadors Program is a fitting and well-earned reward for her enthusiasm and commitment, not only to her studies but also to her school community. We are sure she will make the most of this very exciting opportunity!
