One ends and another begins

Well my time with the wonderful people at the Rocky Horror Show has come to an end and its on to bigger and better things. I had an amazing time and had an amesome send off. I left with Elliot Powell, one of ours swings who has moved onto “The King and I” UK tour. I wish him well in his new production. I had some funny moments in our “Last Matinee”. The best moment for me was when the cast can over and gave me a cuddle during “ I’m going home” (I was on for Frank btw). It made me cry, the people there made me feel like a King and I feel the same about them, what a wonderfully talented group of people. If you haven’t seen the show yet make sure and pop along. Ross Aldred is now playing Riff Raff, he’s great and awesome at Frank too. Enjoy!

After a manic break of a week and a half where I travelled from Glasgow to Bochum is 3 days and back with a day in the middle to move out of my London flat that I shared with Ewan (Rocky Horror) I was ready to begin ‘rolling along’. (Not gonna lie, was a little bit emotional leaving my old flat with Ewan, its the end of an era.) So off to Bochum I went to join my lovely lady and begin in Lloyd Webber’s “Starlight Express”. I can safely say that after a week I enjoy having wheels on my feet, of course its early days and no doubt when the pain starts getting worse I’ll feel differently. At least for the time being I’m loving it, but once I start crying I’ll let you know. The guys (and girl) of the “Newbies” are awesome, we have some great characters and some good team spirit. Nice cushioning into a new job after leaving such a family position. I’m looking forward to whats in store here.
