RECENT NEWS .......
Very interesting and rewarding to workshop Stuart Brayson's new musical with Spirit.
Enjoyed being Jonah.
Photos from The Addams Family with Harlequins Drama Group. June 5th - 7th at Redditch Palace Theatre. It was a really enjoyable experience and I am very proud to have been part of such a quality production.
I loved this musical when I went to see it a few months ago so was really pleased when we worked on this with Spirit and then we even got to sing it at Chiswick Proms too!
New Spirit Video. Very honoured to have been given a solo in this!
So lucky to have had the opportunity to perform in this concert at Cadogan Hall. I was part of the Jersey Boys Medley with Spirit.
Love this song! Looking forward to performing it again at final of West End Calling in May at The Other Palace, London when Spirit are the Special Guests.
FIRST VIDEO/SONG FROM #OurStory RELEASED
A new musical song-cycle depicting the lives of teenagers in the modern day.This show was conceptualised, written and workshopped in a six day period, with all songs based off true stories told by our teenage cast.

We performed the musical at ArtsDepot Theatre on 24th February.
Busy rehearsing for The Addams Family Musical at Redditch Palace Theatre in June with The Harlequins Drama Group. I am playing Gomez Addams and my 'wife' Morticia is actually my cousin Kirsty!
Two videos of High School Musical with Spirit. Good fun to film.
Thanks to Spirit Fan Evie for putting this video together of all my videos so far with Spirit.
Really pleased, after audition to have been cast as the lead 'Gomez' in the Harlequins Production of The Addams Family. This will be my 2nd production of The Addams Family I have been in. In 2015 I was 'Pugsley' for Knowle Musical Society's production.

STAGE SCHOLARSHIPS 2018
Billy Vale -Spirit Young Performers Company
Eight students have been awarded £12,000 worth of scholarships to train at Spirit Young Performers Company, a London-based organisation offering “elite-level training” in dance and musical theatre.
Billy Vale, a 16-year-old performer from Studley, Warwickshire, has been awarded a 40% scholarship.
“I was in the kitchen with my mum when the email came through,” he remembers. “We were both over the moon. It meant I had been recognised for my commitment to performing, and it made me want to fulfil my potential.”
“The first time I really sang was at my brother’s funeral,” he explains. “I was eight, he was 14, and had been battling cancer for seven years. When he passed away, I sang the Lord’s Prayer at his funeral, and that’s where it all started.”
“I just get such a buzz on stage, and I’ve gained a lot of self-confidence over the years,” he continues. “One day, I want to perform on a West End stage, and have people leave thinking it was amazing. I just want to make people’s lives full of entertainment.”
I was so thrilled to have been awarded a Scholarship by Spirit in association with The Stage.
Here is the write-up and the video.
I had to work really hard on my articulation for this. Sondheim isn't easy. A great recording studio for a venue and very proud of our live recording.
I am so pleased with how this video turned out. I am so lucky to work with all of these talented performers every week. I loved watching this musical - the best of the year so far.
I'm enjoying being back at Birmingham Ormiston Academy. Studying Musical Theatre and A Level Maths in 6th Form.
Great summer 'Wicked' workshop with Spirit in London after my GCSEs were over. Looking forward to seeing the finished video. - HERE IT IS -->
Two more Spirit videos. Loved the dancing role in 'Someone in the Crowd' and really enjoyed the filming process of 'The Ballad of Sarah Berry'.
I think this is my favourite Spirit video that I've been involved with so far. Cannot wait for Dear Evan Hansen to get to the West End!
