My Role

Well What is there to say except this must have been one of the best plays I have done to date. One of the most enjoyable,

challenging and rewarding characters I have had to embody in my time.

 

With the emotional roller coaster I had to ride as Tony It made it one of the most memorable experiences.

 

Not to say a vast

learning experience, With such well known and

challenging  songs it pushed and grow my potential as a singer,

helping me to realize that this is what I should be doing
