Thanks so much for talking to me. What can audiences expect from ‘Camelot’? A new take on a show not done very often. It’s exciting.

Were you familiar with the score before becoming involved with this concert performance? I was actually, I played Mordred in an Am Dram production many years ago!

Are there any songs in particular that you are looking forward to audiences hearing?  Anything Charlie Rice sings!

What was it about ‘Camelot’ that made you want to be involved?  It’s a great acting role, a role that doesn’t come along very often. It’s really exciting. 

How has it been working alongside the London Musical Theatre Orchestra? I haven’t heard them yet but working with Freddie and Sean is just fantastic.

What would you say makes the London Musical Theatre Orchestra special?  Again, I’ve not heard them yet but I’m excited to do so! Any time you get to sing with a full orchestra is always a treat.
