Last few weeks have been mad. Damsel in Shining Armour did a mini tour to Cheltenham Everyman, The Lowry, Manchester and ending at a golf club in the Scottish countryside. I then made an impromptu appearance on the West End (literally) at Cafe de Paris for the Black Cat cabaret night. Puuurfect (sorry).
On more Hollywood note I've been buried in black box spaces with award winning all-female theatre company ShadyJane putting the finishing touches to our glamorous show 'Marilyn Gets Up'. I've been building sets, painting, cutting up petals and have learnt how to work mini projectors to perfection. We made our debut last Wednesday on the main stage at Winchester Theatre Royal and it was smashing. We're still mid-way through our preview tour and have relocated to a warehouse in Peckham...from one extreme….
To sum up, the vocal chords have been getting well used, I've shocked a lot of old people, glitter and sawdust is stuck in every orifice and I've grown quite accustomed to my blond wig. Apparently they do have more fun…

Doing the Back to Back
Wed April 3rd 2013
So I'm finally going to put the two shows together on Saturday 6th April at St James Theatre, for an epic back to back performance of 'The Damsel in Shining Armour' (Best Cabaret Adelaide Fringe 2011) and 'Hot' (Nominee Best Cabaret 2012). It's going to be exhilirating albeit sweaty. Tickets sales are going great so I'm really chuffed. Do come along if you can make it, kick off is 7.15pm and there is a bar ridiculously near the stage. http://www.stjamestheatre.co.uk/events/the-damsel-in-shining-armour/

Here's me doing ten minutes to a smashing audience at the legendary Finger in the Pie at Madam Jojos.
Finger in the Pie
Mon February 4th 2013
Smashed it up last night at Madame Jojos for Finger in The Pie. Really enjoying flaunting my Celine Dion inspired melodrama all over London. Also, had a nice review from 'This is Cabaret': http://www.thisiscabaret.com/review-the-damsel-in-shining-armour-st-james-theatre/ Never hurts...
Thanks to everyone who made it to St James Theatre on Saturday, it was packed all the way to the posh seats at the top and it was a such a pleasure to do. I'm off on Sunday to a cottage in Devon for a week, to work with the award winning, all female performance collective; ShadyJane. We're going to create a show inspired by the iconic Marilyn Monroe. I'm taking my michrophone, two ukuleles and Smash box set so I've covered all bases. Have a look at the girls here: http://www.shadyjane.co.uk.
