My Name is Nils and I’m almost 11 years old. I joined Step On Stage in 2015 and have loved taking part in every available performance and concert. I’ve been the Mayor of Munchkinland in “The Wizard of Oz”, Mr Banks in “Mary Poppins” and Gus the Theatre cat in “Cats”, but my highlights have been the two major SOS productions that I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of: “Annie Get Your Gun” in June 2016 and “The Merchant of Venice” in November 2016.
I had a lot of fun with my part as the Prince of Morocco in “The Merchant of Venice” and really enjoyed exploring the magic of Shakespeare in our rehearsals.
I was also nominated for a Richmond SWAN award for Best Young Actor age 14 and Under for this part, which was an incredible experience. My family and I got to go to the Gala Awards ceremony with Emma and the team in September 2017. This was a lot of fun. The Mayor of Richmond and actress Samantha Bond were presenting the nomination certificates and awards and it was amazing to meet them in person.
