Yes, we have actually secured a Workshop with West End Royalty!!
The workshop will feature acting through song, singing tips and movement. You'll have the chance to ask Kerry questions at the end of the session about her experiences and journey into West End musical stardom, as well as photo opportunities with her!
She's also just launched her biography, 'From Bumpkin to Broadway', so we should be able to get her to sign our copies!!
Here's some info about Kerry's rise to stardom!
Kerry originated the role of Meat, in Queen’s We Will Rock You and was the first British Elphaba in the West End smash, Wicked, for which Kerry won the 2008 Whatsonstage.com Award for ‘Best Takeover in a Role’.
She then immediately transferred to Broadway as Elphaba and won the Broadway.com Audience Award for Favourite Female Breakthrough Performance!
Her many other leading role credits include Nancy in Oliver! at Drury lane, Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, Ellen in Miss Saigon and Fantine in Les Miserables.
Kerry’s first major CD release was the amazing Wicked in Rock, a collaboration with friend and Queen guitarist, Brian May.
As a solo recording artist she has had chart success with her album, ‘Anthems’, which led to a tour starting at the Royal Albert Hall.
She has performed internationally including performances at the Royal Variety Performance, at the Laurence Olivier Awards, duetting with Barry Manilow on the BBC, on Loose Women, Alan Titchmarsh Show, BBC Breakfast, at the Henley Festival alongside John Barrowman, and the Queen’s Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace!
Phew!! Aren't we lucky!!
