Since joining his first local theatre group back in 2013, James has performed in an average of three shows a year and has landed lead roles in musical productions such as Bill Sykes in ‘Oliver!’, Prince Christopher in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s ‘Cinderella’ (both at the NST Campus Theatre), Nicky/Trekkie in ‘Avenue Q’ at The Berry Theatre in Hedge End and Benjamin Coffin III in ‘Rent’ at The Point in Eastleigh.
He also enjoys performing in plays and comedies with his favourite roles including Benedick in Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, Richard Hannay in ‘The 39 Steps!’ and Alec Harvey in ‘Brief Encounter’. James’ passion for performing expanded to party and event entertainment in November 2018 when he began working as a children’s character performer.
His favourite thing about working with children is how much fun he has with them – he enjoys running parties as much as the children enjoy participating! He is looking forward to where his journey with Imaginacts takes him!
