Tring schoolboy lands role in English National Ballet’s Nutcracker

A schoolboy from Tring will be performing in the English National Ballet’s adaptation of Nutcracker at the London Coliseum this Christmas.

Conall Turner, 10, who is a student at the prestigious Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, will be performing in the much-loved festive ballet next month.

Conall started at Tring Park School last September but prior to that he was a pupil at  Aldbury CofE Primary School

He discovered his love of performing when he was six when he began taking acting, singing and dance lessons at Allstars Academy in Cow Roast where the principal Amanda Constantinou encouraged him to pursue dance, which led Conall to audition for a place at Tring Park School. 

Conall is no stanger to performing on a big stage having performed at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre as part of the tour of Nativity last Christmas.

Talking about being at Tring Park School and his forthcoming performances in Nutcracker, Conall said: “Tring Park is better than I ever imagined. The teachers are amazing and so are my friends. Now I get to be part of Nutcracker and dance with the English National Ballet ­ – it’s a dream come true. I love performing and Tring Park makes me feel like I can achieve anything!. 

Conall will be performing in the Nutcracker with the English National Ballet at the London Coliseum from 11-15 December and 26 December to 5 January 2020.
