Meet Justice…


Welcome to the FINAL of the ‘Meet the Cast’ posts! And I’ve saved the strong sassy queen till last…20182990_10155685123198013_1113933999_n

Name: 
Lucy Evans

Character name: 
Justice Charlier

Tell me a bit about your character: 
Owner of the Venus “Gentleman’s Club”, Justice takes on the ‘mother’ role of the girls who work for her. She picks Sherrie up off the street when she has no where to go and no where to live.

Favourite song in the show and why:
‘Dead or Alive’ … because it is simply a bl**dy fantastic song!!

Favourite dance move in the show: 
Standing at the top of the stairs (well…on a chair in rehearsals) – it’s all I’ve done so far.

Most embarrassing moment ever on stage: 
Cracking my head open during an all female production of Romeo and Juliet, within which I played Tybalt. When Romeo stabbed me, my dramatic death took me half way into the wing… where there was an amplifier primed and ready to split my head open! Shame it was only the dress rehearsal! The audience could have witnessed real blood!

Favourite pastime out of theatre: 
Being on TV quiz shows…if you’re a Pointless watcher, look out in the next few weeks!! 

Why you should come and see HSAP’s RoA:  
You’d be seriously mad to miss it! I have done many a show with many a talented cast and this is something special! So, give me a reason why you wouldn’t…

And that’s it! ‘Meet the Cast’ is over!

There are a LOT of characters, and some that I’m afraid I don’t have time to introduce you to. But, these have given you a bit of insight to the show and the characters leading us through it. If you missed any, CLICK HERE to take you to the home page – they’re all there, listed from newest to oldest 🙂 

I hope you enjoyed meeting our incredibly talented principles, they’re all amazing and such lovely people as well. From next week, you’ll get to see/hear more about the entire company – seen as rehearsals are in full swing now post-summer!

We’re now only a month away from the show, so make sure you get your tickets, they’re selling fast!

Wrapping Up For Summer…


It’s the summer holidays (for some, every time I’ve updated the other half on how far away summer is, he’s said ‘Yeh for YOU!’ 😂 Sorry hun 😂).

Nevertheless, summer is definitely upon us, which means rehearsals for Rock of Ages have been put on hold. And, although I wasn’t at the last rehearsal because of work, from what was happening the week before, the show seems to be in a good place! We’re making our way through the show from the beginning, rather than jumping between different scenes which means we can all really get to grips with how the show is going to work, and see it take shape.

Rehearsals have differed between singing with our Musical Director, Jim Lunt, and floor rehearsals with our Director and Choreographer, Louise Denison.

One of the first lessons the dancers learned (and I know I mentioned it in my last blog post before my HSAP posts started)…KNEE PADS! Knee pads are our friends in this show 😂 After the scrapes and bruises that followed our first rehearsal setting the opening number…Yeh. It was not pretty 😂 Totally worth it mind you, we are LIVING.

The biggest lesson learnt in singing rehearsals (apart from when in doubt, rock it out) – is that we have the most incredibly talented cast, we really do. And I’m not the only one to say it. Our principles are insane, its such a joy to sit in rehearsals and hear them belting out those anthems we love so much. If you don’t come to the show for anything else, please just come to hear them sing. Coz it’s SO good.

 I don’t know about the rest of the cast, but I’m already eager to get back into rehearsals and carry on powering through. There’s such a good vibe with the company and coupled with the amazing show we have, it makes for an incredible few hours on Tuesday nights.

My plan, seeing as we don’t have ongoing rehearsals to report on, I’m going to introduce you to the cast 🙂 I gave you a bit of a show synopsis last week, so you’ll be able to put faces to names, learn more about the characters and the wonderful people playing them. AND you’ll get to see more rehearsal photos too, so you can have a nosy at what we’ve been getting up to! First up, our lovely leading lady.

So watch this space, I’ve already had our principles fill in a questionnaire, and some of the responses are guaranteed to make you laugh…so they’ll defo be worth a read!

Sending love to all at HSAP, have a lovely summer ♥

Until next time…
