Thrill of the stage drives Bonnie
OVER the past few years talented local girl Bonnie Clarke has been participating in the speech and drama section of the eisteddfod.
Competing in six events in this year's eisteddfod including mime and poetry reading, she is excited to build upon her acting skills.
“I love the eisteddfod because I love acting,” Clarke said.
“I have been in heaps of schools plays and I also like voice acting.”
Clarke said it was the thrill of being up on stage that she loved when it came to performing.
“It is the excitement that you get on stage – even goosebumps.”
Like many other entrants, Clarke hopes to pursue a career in acting after school and will continue entering in the eisteddfod for years to come.
The eisteddfod will reconvene on September 19 for the dance section and performers are busy adding the final touches to their routines.
