Welcome to the second of our ‘Meet the Cast’ posts. Today, I introduce you to our lovely leading lady!
Tell me a bit about your character:
She moves to the sunset strip to follow her dream of being an actress.
Favourite song in the show and why:
Definitely ‘Here I Go Again’. The harmonies in that song are just insane and with everyone joining in for the end of Act 1, it will be an electric number!
Our leading man and lady: Beth (as Sherrie) with Chris (as Drew)
Favourite dance move in the show:
I actually haven’t had the chance to dance myself yet, though I’m sure there’ll be lots of crazy stuff for me to do when it comes to ‘Anyway You Want It’, can’t wait for that by the way! But I love Drew’s rocking out in ‘I Wanna Rock’.
Most embarrassing moment ever on stage:
Oh god, well once when I was about 16, I was in a show called ‘South Pacific’. And for some reason they thought it was a good idea to put me in a stars and stripes bikini whilst doing a dance on the pretty steep rake of the Theatre Royal (the rake is the name for the gradient of the stage – it’s higher at the back, and slopes down towards the audience). Already a catastrophic mix, throw some very slippy character shoes into it – I ended up completely decking it every single night, no matter how hard I tried to stay up right. Fortunately it just looked like I was meant to be the clumsy dancer so I think I got away with it in the end.
Favourite pastime out of theatre:
Definitely photography, me and my boyfriend spend lot of our days off going on photo missions. My camera is one of my favourite belongings and I’m always trying to do different things with photography to try find something that I’m good at. Hopefully I’ll find it one day.
Why you should come and see HSAP’s RoA:
The music! It’s nostalgic and honestly the score is amazing and also the cast is brilliant! It’s going to be an incredibly fun show, to be a part of but also to watch!
Thankyou to the gorgeous Beth for that! Next week, we meet Lonny. Definitely worth keeping an eye out, that’s a funny one 😂
