West End debut for Damain

Damian (Year 8) has made his West End debut in two sold out performances. He performed on September 19 at the Leicester Square Theatre in showcase performances of a new musical: “Call Me Diana” about the life of Princess Diana. He was one of only two boys to be chosen as part of the children’s chorus of just eight.

Damian had to undertake an intense month of rehearsals with the cast and with UK and US production teams at Raindance Studios. David Smart the composer was so impressed with Damian’s voice that he asked him to open the show with an off stage vocal.

Damian said “It was really exciting performing in the West End. I had to open the show by singing a solo from the wings. It was quite scary but I felt really proud.”
