    Harry Al-Adwani stars in National Youth Music Theatre's summer production 'Prodigy', 12th - 15th August (St James Theatre, London)

    Sixth Form Leaver Harry Al-Adwani (SH) has been cast as the male lead in the National Youth Music Theatre (NYMT) summer production at the St James Theatre in London.

    The musical is a newly commissioned work called Prodigy, written by the team who created The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole. It focuses on a group of finalists in the Young Musician of the Year competition.

    An added challenge for Harry is that not only must he act, sing and dance, he must also learn and play the vibraphone!

    Competition for places in the National Youth Music Theatre is fierce; it is described by Andrew Lloyd Weber as “the best youth music theatre in the world” and boasts alumni including Jude Law, Eddie Redmayne and Sheridan Smith.
