MHS Student takes to the stage

This Saturday, 30 November, will see Year 7 student Henry H take to the stage to perform in his first ever pantomime, taking on the role of Michael Darling in Chelmsford Theatre’s production of Peter Pan.

Having auditioned for the coveted role in May of this year, Henry was overjoyed to secure the part and will perform in 31 performances during the panto’s five-week run.

This isn’t Henry’s first production, in February 2017 while living in Chennai, India, he attended an American International school where he secured the part of Gulliver in Gulliver's Travels and last Christmas saw Henry playing Tiny Tim and a Young Scrooge in A Christmas Carol at The Old Court Theatre.

Henry loves to act, sing and dance and, when living in India, he worked with the Missoula Children’s Theatre. Since moving back to the UK, he’s attended Little Stars drama group in Great Baddow, where he takes LAMDA (London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art) acting and musical theatre exams.

Taking part in a production such as Peter Pan takes a great deal of commitment from Henry, he has dedicated many hours to his rehearsals and always ensures he learns a lot from the older actors in the production. 

Break a leg, Henry!
