An aspiring young actress from Carnoustie has been awarded a prestigious placement with the Dundee Repertory Theatre.

Caroline Dey (25), who uses the stage name Caroline Deyga, was talented enough to secure a place in the Rep’s graduate scheme.

The year long placement will give her valuable experience in the industry. She explained: “For the time we are there we are part of the Rep ensemble and take part in the productions.

“We also get involved in the other departments such as creative learning and it gives us a more rounded idea of what the Rep does.”

Caroline studied at Dundee College at the Space for three years before completing a two year stage and screen course at Napier and Queen Margaret University.

She added: “Basically the Rep has such a great reputation and the productions are well renowned within Scottish theatre so it’s a real chance for me to get seen by the art people. It’s a really great springboard, and I have these great productions that I can invite agents to. I don’t know what will happen but I know that this amazing opportunity will stand me in great stead for whatever happens next.

“It’s a chance to build my CV and make that transformation from student to a professional actor.”

Caroline will be appearing in the Scottish premiere of David Greig’s ‘Victoria’ from September 4 to 21 at the Rep.
