Pirates of Penzance

So there I am on officers course – singing at a Cabaret venue in PTA to supplement my Air Force income (conscription years) when low and behold I get invited to come and audition for the juvenile lead Fredrick. I went and got the part! Having never been on a professional stage before.

The Army was amazing – I was given a month off to rehearse and was allowed to go and perform at night. Truly a first and a last!

I was petrified, but adored every single moment of that very, very special first time on a professional stage!
