Rehearsals: Week 4

It’s the weekend and after over a month of not drinking, it’s finally time to crack open the bottle and get swigging. The main reasons I was partaking in a Dry May was because a) I wanted to save money and b) I wanted my skin to clear up. In recent weeks, my skin has

Rehearsals: Week 3

Week 3 is finally coming to an end, leaving us with just under 2 weeks left until our opening night. This week seems to have bolted past my eyes before I could even get a chance to blink. It’s gone crazy fast.  Perhaps too fast. For me, this week was a turning point. A step

Lizzie Musical UK

“On a sweltering summer morning in 1892, in a small New England city, a prominent businessman and his wife were axed to death in their home. Their daughter Lizzie Borden was the prime suspect. Lizzie’s trial was a coast-to-coast media sensation, and her story has become an American legend. Lizzie is four women fronting a six-piece rock band. Lizzie is rage, sex, betrayal, and bloody murder. Lizzie is American mythology set to a blistering rock score. Lizzie is a new American musical with a sound owing less to Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber than to Bikini Kill, the Runaways, and Heart.”

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there”

‘She took me by the hands and spiralled with me around the room telling me to close my eyes, it was just me and her; everyone else disappeared, all the while asking me to find my character through my breath – something that was relatively new to me in an acting sense. There was something so magical about this moment that I’m really grateful for. Whilst spiralling there were, for a brief moment, glimpses of me just letting go and being free almost. It felt like I was teleported to a room where everything was white and serene. It was like being in a meadow full of daisies and greenery being 5-years-old again playing without a care in the world.’

Freshers

I made my move on the 4th September 2016 and was immediately greeted to a BBQ styled jam outside our very own Laban building. It was quite a cute little ice breaker for meeting people across the years. Whilst I was a tad bit disappointed there were no Whitney Houston songs playing, the drinks were
