A LEADING school in the performing arts is trawling for young acting talent here.
The University of London's Central School of Speech and Drama held auditions last Wednesday at the National University of Singapore (NUS).
This is the first time the 103-year-old school is staging auditions in Singapore.
It boasts Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter and Carrie Fisher of Star Wars fame among its alumni.
Hong Kong and Toronto, Canada are the other new locales the school is touring this year to add to its pool of international students.
They will make up about 100 out of the school's 800-strong student population next year. There are at least three Singaporeans currently enrolled in the school right now.
