PROMISING young actor William Rodell has been selected to perform at Shakespeare's Globe as part of the fifth annual Sam Wanamaker Festival later this month.
William, a third year student at Manchester Metropolitan University's School of Theatre, is originally from St Albans.
He will perform a scene from John Ford's play Tis Pity She's a Whore in front of an audience of casting agents, artistic directors, family, friends and members of the public.
William said: "I'm utterly delighted to be taking part in the Sam Wanamaker Festival - it's a fantastic opportunity and I'm looking forward to the chance to be allowed to perform in a great space."

William will also take part in a weekend of classes, lectures and workshops at the Globe exploring language, movement and voice with the theatre's practitioners. The festival culminates in the public performance of duologues by Shakespeare and such contemporaries as Webster, Dekker, Fletcher, Ford and Middleton.
