Harry's West End Call-up

Drama & Dance

We are delighted to announce that one of our Year 8 students is to play a leading role in a new West End Musical from February next year.

Harry Gilby, who has attended the famous Television Workshop in Nottingham for a few years recently auditioned for a part in ‘The Full Monty’ amongst a group of 100 other young hopeful thespians. Out of all those who auditioned, Harry has managed to land the role of Nathan in the West End Production.

It’s going to be a busy time for Harry when rehearsals begin at the start of February in Bath, when he will then transfer to The Noël Coward Theatre in the West End at the end of that month. Harry will be starring alongside the original cast including household names such as Craig Gazey, who is most famously known as playing Graeme Proctor in Coronation Street and Simon Rouse, who appeared on our screens for 20 years as DCI Jack Meadows in the ITV Police Crime Drama, ‘The Bill’.

Harry is a member of the Scholars’ Company at Trent and has been involved in many productions, with the most recent being the 789 Company’s performance of ‘Skellig’ and he should be extremely proud of what he has managed to achieve.

Alison Bolton, Director of Drama & Theatre said, ‘we are enormously proud of Harry in landing this role in the West End. He is a young enthusiastic and talented young actor and we wish him well in his acting career’.

We look forward to updating you on Harry’s progress in the coming months.
