ASPIRING young actors are treading the boards on the RSC’s world-famous Stratford stage in the current season of Rome plays.
Luca Saraceni-Gunne, 13, from Stratford, Sebastian Dibb,13, from Leamington, and Will Parsons, 14, from Leamington are sharing the role of Young Lucius in Titus Andronicus.
Luca is also part of the cast for Julius Caesar, along with Sam Littell, 12, from Little Kineton and Tom Lomas, 11, from Leamington, who are all sharing the role of Lucius.
Luca, who goes to St Benedict’s school in Alcester, has already appeared in RSC productions of The Winter’s Tale, Henry IV Part II and Hecuba, and has just finished his first film, Snow Maze, with Ridley Scott Films.
He said: “I feel really honoured to be part of these projects. It’s brilliant being cast for two different shows at the same time, and such a privilege to be back at the RSC.
“I absolutely love the modern style of Titus Andronicus and I think it works fantastically well. The cast and company in both shows are incredible people to work with.”
The boys in Titus Andronicus are taking to the stage alongside RSC veteran David Troughton who plays the title role.
Titus Andronicus runs until September 2 and Julius Caesar until September 9. The boys share their roles, appearing in alternate performances.
