Y7 Student Ellie Bailey has just won a prestigious award for her acting.
She won the Burslem Stars Trophy for being the best Under 12 actress in Stoke on Trent.
Ellie, who performs with the Mow Cop Players, is the first person from that group to win such an award.
In the production of 'The Cage Birds', performed at the Mitchell Memorial Theatre, Ellie played the character of the 'Wild One'.
Since the age of three Ellie has been on stage, and she would love to continue that as a profession once her studies have finished. Her next production will be a pantomime this coming Christmas.
