Musical Theatre

I made my debut in musical theatre aged 9 years old playing the Young Tootie Smith in the Musical theatre production of Meet Me in St Louie at the Landor Theatre (Fringe) and was delighted that it received rave reviews. This was my first taste of performing professionally on stage and I loved every minute of it, from the rehearsals, the friendships made, to the actual performance and I will treasure these memories forever.

Special mention should go to little Rebecca Barry who, as young Tootie, provides some of the best one-liners of the evening, as well as possessing a great voice.

The show could not have found someone more like Margaret O’Brien than little Rebecca Barry, a young showbiz veteran already, who is a marvellously knowing Tootie and makes her totally believable and quite loveable. If Annie ever gets revived again, Rebecca should be straight in there.

Andrea Bocelli with Spirit YPC Choir 

After this,  I auditioned and was accepted into Spirit Young Performers Company Elite Musical Theatre Troupe and Elite Singing Troupe, with them I  was cast as an orphan in cabaret production Apocalypse Meow- A crisis is born, at the Southbank Centre (Christmas 2015) going on to perform on ITV's production of Keep it in the Family,  and I also had the privilege of being part of the backing choir for Andrea Bocelli at the 02  which was incredible! I loved being part of SpiritYPD/YDC family and hope to return for a workshop in the future.

Last year I had the pleasure sharing the role of Angel, a lead role,  in the 'Lazy Ace' with PQA Academy in the WestEnd which was an incredible experience for the whole team. 

In 2015 I performed with the English Youth Ballet as a kitten and a charm girl in the stage production of Sleeping Beauty, and more recently as a dancer in Jack and the Beanstalk, (a local pantomime.)

I still enjoy Musical Theatre and hope one day to be cast in a West End  production. My favourite productions thatI have enjoyed watching are Wicked, Matilda  and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to mention a few. I can’t wait to see Hamilton and Harry Potter on stage in the near future!
