The Human Ants in Suits

On Thursday I took two trains back from Matlock. The train ride Matlock to Nottingham is a very nice ride because we spend 30mintues looking around the countryside. It's rather amazing but when you arrive into the first city, Derby. All you see are people rushing around! I like to think them as Human ants in suits.

The train buzzed a looking far accoss staring at me was a BBC Radio presenter for Derby :) Sadly didn't get to chat but had stare contest! We arrived into Nottingham at five. I went to find the platform and sat down on a blue lonely bench. A man walked past stopped and looked around, I reliased he was blind and stood up quickly and offered my seat to him. Soon quickly after it was taken by a fat lazy and completey rude woman. I was talking to a friend for 20mintues and the train quickly came in. I had to run all the way down two platforms in order to get my family a seat. I was sat opposite some acholics being rather rude and possibly very, very drunk indeed!

 I sat and felt very dizzy, suddenly everything went dark. I felt like I fainted. My sister kicked me under the table to try wake me up. I thought to myself "Oh god, I've passed out..." Everything, the sound was very bubbly like I was underwater. I heard mum say we were at the stop  and my sister gave a very hard kick. I slowly woke up and got off the train. I overheard people asking if I was ok. I took out something sweet and drink and felt a little bit better.

I walked home in my red Joe Browns coat thinking about a friend. I went to my room and sat and layed down.

-pretty much all I can remember guys! sorry!

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…
