Selsey boy lands key West End role
SELSEY boy Cameron Sutherland is walking on air after landing a stage role in London’s West End.
The ten-year-old actor has landed the role of the young boy in Birmingham Repertory’s production of The Snowman at The Peacock Theatre, London.
Cameron is a student at The Theatre Workshop, which is celebrating his success alongside that of fellow student Abigail Eames. She will be hitting the big screen, in action-packed feature film Shivay, due to be released in January.
Both Cameron and Abigail attend the Chichester branch of The Theatre Workshop, where they take classes in singing, acting and Dance. Classes are run at the Central CofE School, Orchard Street, on Saturday mornings from 10am to 1pm.
Since joining The Theatre Workshop, Cameron has secured roles such as the hedgehog in the Royal Ballet adaptation of Alice in Wonderland at the Royal Opera House, as well as appearing in operas such as Carmen and Madame Butterfly with The Ellen Kent Opera and Ballet Company.
He is now looking forward to ‘walking in the air’ from December 1 to January 4 as The Boy in the enchanting story of a young boy’s adventures when his snowman comes to life.
Lora Munro, creative director and founder, said: “We are so proud of our students’ success and cannot wait to see them flourish in the next stage of their career.”
Abigail, 12, is no stranger to the limelight, having starred in many TV shows, including Mr Selfridge, Doctor Who, The Interceptor, Lawless, and Harry and Paul.
She has spent the past six weeks filming with the celebrated Bollywood star Ajay Devgn in India.
