This Christmas Alpha’s DAVID SAYERS will be bringing a touch of magic to Kingston in the delightful musical story ‘The Christmas Crocodile’. Using the local legend of how Sopwith’s aircraft factory developed (with the aid of Clara and a crocodile!) an amazing new children’s toy once World War 1 drew to an end and adding a sprinkling of magic this promises to be a treat for young and old. Tickets and info are available here.
The new feature film ‘Outside’ is about to start shooting and Alpha’s ANAH RUDDIN has been cast alongside star Imelda Staunton. Directed by award-winning actress Romola Garai this horror film looks to be one of the treats of 2019!
New Alpha member KATHERINE VERNEZ-GRAY is currently rehearsing for Oily Cart’s revival of ‘Hippity Hop’, a multi-sensory musical for young children aged 2-5. With puppetry, music and pizzazz it promises to be a festive treat for the family. The production runs from the 11th - 31st December at the Artsdepot in North London before touring to Leicester and Canterbury in the January. Tickets and info are available here.
New Alpha member NATALIE MORGAN is enjoying her rehearsals for David Walliams’ ‘Billionaire Boy’ in Southampton. The show runs at the Nuffield from the 20th November - 6th January and then tours to Salford, Coventry and Cardiff. Based on Walliam's’ hit novel this new musical features Natalie as Sue Grubb. We can’t wait to see it!

****1/2 LONDON PUB THEATRE review - ‘a fearless, confrontational and darkly funny show’
Alpha’s PATSY PRINCE took part in the first Mandy Speed Mentoring Event this week. It proved a great success. Here is one of her soundbites: "If you really want to be a successful actor then apply yourself to that goal. Be determined, focused, professional, bold, assertive, network and no matter what anyone says, do it or die trying. If you don't feel like this you should probably do something else."
