So I'm squeezing in a gig amidst the Dogfight run; for which if you haven't already booked tickets, please do. This show is f'ing beautiful, if I do say so myself. Laura Jane Matthewson and Jamie Muscato are bloody astonishing in the lead roles and the rest of the company are also nauseatingly talented and a joy to work with. Possibly the happiest rehearsal room I've ever been in. Already very proud of this one.
Anyway, back to the point of this post! This gig is in aid of raising funds for an eleven year old chap called Nate Leung to attend Sylvia Young's performing arts school. This guy is the most enterprising eleven year old I've ever come across; as well as gathering an impressive crowd of West End performers for this gig, he's been taking warmups at various productions across the West End, selling handmade loom band bracelets to West End performers and has set himself many more challenges to raise the fees required. You can find out more about his progress and make a donation on his fundraising page, link below.
I'm incredibly impressed by his drive and determination (he's eleven for Christ's sake. ELEVEN. Hats off.) It's already shaping up to be a great gig and it would be lovely to see some of you there. It's on Sunday, August 17th at Cecil Sharp House, 7:30 start. Tickets can be purchased by calling 0203 737 3066. Please bear in mind that tickets cannot be purchased on the door, so best get in quick!
