When did you join BATS ?


What inspired you to join BATS ?

Of course my mum, who has been a big part of BATS since she was in her early twenties. She’s always encouraged me to get up on stage and PERFORM! I love watching her perform through old videos as she’s never afraid to make a fool of herself - I feel like I have inherited this trait from her 😂.

Which has been your favourite production ?

Sister Act, I absolutely adored the music and loved changing from nightclub hussy to a nun. It was so much fun and we had such a laugh, I always came away from rehearsals feeling like I’d achieved so much.

What would be your dream role in the theatre ?

I would love to play ‘Sandy’ in ‘Grease’, going from shy schoolgirl to ultimate sass queen would be such a fun character to develop!
