A 12-year-old Maidenhead stage star is on cloud nine after being nominated for a prestigious Olivier Award.
Kerry Ingram, who attends Redroofs Theatre School in Bath Road, Maidenhead, is starring in the West End production of Matilda The Musical.
She has been shortlisted for the honour alongside three other actresses who take turns in the title role.
They are vying as a collective to be named Best Actress in a Musical.
Kerry found out the news on Thursday and said: "It would just be amazing to win."
The actress takes on the role of Matilda at least twice a week at the Cambridge Theatre in Camden and said: "I like the feeling of being up on stage and people cheering and laughing."
Named after the renowned actor Laurence Olivier, the awards are the highest honour in British theatre.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Royal Opera House on April 15.
