Katie Hall ('08), fresh off the back of a stint as Fantine with the Les Miserables UK & Ireland tour, has begun a tour with Earl Carpenter. Up Close and Personal - A Life in Musicals, is currently touring various venues throughout the UK. It is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at life on the stage, reuniting Katie, who played Christine, with Earl Carpenter, who played the Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera. Katie and Earl will be coming to Oakham on Thursday 22 September - ticket details will be revealed at a later date. 

Elaine Watt ('07) is making her Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut as a cast member in An Evil Thing, playing the part of Peggy Clark. Elaine is a member of The Progressive Players Gateshead, an amateur troupe making their first appearance at the Fringe. Tickets are available here: 

Congratulations are also in order for two recent OOs, Caleb Ighofose ('21) and Clo Farmer ('19) as they head off to Drama School in the Autumn. Clo is headed to Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and Caleb is joining RADA, both studying BA Acting courses. Break a leg both of you!
