4 Train Thursday

So it's Thursday again so I had to catch two trains to Derbyshire & two trains back. But I guess I should tell you from the beginning what I did for a few hours.

We walked out of the train station and made my way to the crossing for the long bridge. After deciding where to eat, we sat and ate. We took my sister to her class and made my way to a vintage art & craft shop. As we started walking up the road, it started to get hiller & far more hiller. My chest felt tight and side hurt. We stopped and turned round to look at the amazing scenery. We turned again and saw how far to walk and took another hike up the freaking great big hill. We arrived at the shop and took a look around. We went to sit down for some drink. I had a coffee in a delightful fine bone china mug with a pheasant in a gold colour on the side. At the bottom of the cup looked like a carefully handpainted rose. My mum & grandparent had a cup of tea. What made this afternoon even more nice was sketching and chatting. I took a quick look at my phone and we had 30mintues to collect my sister. "30mintues...30mintues to walk down that bugger of a hill?!". So after walking down the hill we took a slow walk because we were far ahead of time yet again!

Once we had collected my sister we had to walk fast because the train was due to leave in 10mintues. I held my hand on my side because it was still saw. I didn't know why and I started become almost frightened. We arrived at the station and kept feeling light headed. I slumped against a pole waiting for the train. The train was delayed by half an hour. When we were on the train arriving into Derby. The train was yet again delayed because of silly things. I made a really bad joke and I am not sure I can tell you guys! We arrived home around about 18:30pm. I slumped on the floor again and listened to coldplay.

So really not that much of an exciting day!

Bring Me Sunshine | Life as a Musical Theatre Student | #1

Studying and training in Musical Theatre is an absolute dream at the moment, I may be a bit left footed when it comes to Jazz, but even when something doesn't go right we give it the jazz hands.

The students are lovely and so talented, it feels weird to be the eldest and occasionally having to (literally) catch up! During my Fine Art studies I was sort of the 'middle aged' student, but the eldest was 47 years old.

To catch up, what's been happening this past month?
I had the opportunity to participate in Lucy Suggate's 'Swarm Sculptures' at Nottingham Contemporary and rehearse in the amazing new Dance4 studio in September.

I also had the fantastic opportunity to go to my first premiere of 'Hood' in Nottingham for a pilot episode for the TV series starring, local singer/songwriter Josh Kemp and a fellow friends and actors, Adam Guest and Mik Horvath.
It was so wonderful getting to finally catch up with them and would like to personally thank them …

Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | Anita And Me

In absolute excitement, I have been so happy and very fortunate to be back performing as Ensemble with Touring Consortium Theatre Company again in 'Anita And Me' at Theatre Royal Nottingham 14th to 18th March 2017.

THURSDAY | 9th March 2017


It's the first rehearsal, I am always nervous before meeting people but the fact I already know four of the ensemble members makes it just that little bit better,  Michelle Smith, Estelle Smith, Alice Gee and Marcus Whybrow who were also in A Tale of Two Cities back in November 2016.

I have to be honest, it felt a bit weird to be going to the same rehearsal venue where I'm involved with two stage productions which ironically are being toured around the UK and each of the show's are exactly ten days apart - I'm currently involved with this production (Anita And Me) and The Grapes of Wrath.

We have commenced rehearsals on the beginning scenes where myself, Alice and Marcus have to run on stage cause chaos in Tollington with t…

Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | A Tale Of Two Cities |

You may have noticed in previous weeks, the very delay in posting covers, vlog's and also posting updates! The past two weeks in November have been immersive and utterly incredible.

💖 THURSDAY & FRIDAY ( 17th & 18th ) 💖
The rehearsal day had arrived, since finding out my audition was successful in the summer, I had been eagerly counting the days down.

On Thursday (17th) the ensemble also know as the Two Cities Twelves, introduced each other  - luckily I already knew some of the cast ( Mike Newbold, Marcus Whybrow, Michelle Smith and Alice Gee) from previous productions and also as friends but I was certainly thrilled to meet and perform with more like mind and lovely local actors and actresses.
We commenced rehearsing on some of the scenes including 'The Hanging' - which reminded me strangely of my FMP (Fine Art - Final Major Project) earlier this Summer after creating my two five foot puppets.


On Friday we commenced rehearsing the next scenes including my pe…
