Carrie Hope Fletcher

Posted on

Carrie Hope Fletcher, known for her YouTube video’s recently joined the Les Miserables cast as Eponine. This was a dream come true for the 20-year-old who played young eponine when she was 7 years old. Fans that hadn’t yet seen Carrie at the Queens Theatre had the opportunity to have a sneak peek yesterday at West End Live in Trafalgar Square. Her emotional performance of ‘On My Own’ blew everyone away.

The following video is of the complete Les Mis performance at West End Live filmed by my friend Emma.

Here’s a collection of Photos I took of Carrie and the rest of the cast.

Carrie will continue to make video’s on her YouTube channel ItsWayPastMyBedtime throughout her years long contract in Les Mis.

Something to look Forward to

Posted on

So it’s coming to the end of my first week back at work since getting back off holiday and I couldn’t be more excited for the weekend. It’s not over yet though! Tomorrow I have a two-hour trek to a conference to look forward to, (Can you detect a hint of sarcasm in that sentence?) but at least it gets me out of the work place for the day and they feed me 🙂

On a brighter note, West End Live have finally announced their 2012 line-up and schedule. Anyone that knows me, knows I love my musicals and this is an event I’ve been looking forward to since last years. For those of you who haven’t a clue what I am talking about, I shall explain. West End Live is an annual 2 day show-casing event where shows from the West End perform a selection of songs on a big stage in London’s Trafalgar Square for the general public. Whether they be old favourites or new and upcoming, this years performances come from every West End musical.

A Look Back On My 2011

Posted on

As I took a short walk earlier I started to think about all the things that I have done this year and what a great year its been overall. The most memorable moments started with a trip to Dublin in March during St Patrick’s week. In that time we saw Boyzone at the Dublin O2 arena and went to Dublin zoo. There was never a dull moment, even back at the hotel while getting ready for nights out we would listen to music and have a glass or two of rose. The St Patrick’s day parade was crazy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people attend such an event all at once. It certainly was an incredible experience.

I attended a few Boyzone Concerts this year, a couple of Westlife and one Take That which was an amazing birthday present from my brother and his fiancée. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a rock chick at heart but 90’s boy bands are my guilty pleasure.

This year has definitely been the year of the musical for me, I’ve clocked up an impressive 42 shows which include:

Jersey Boys x25

Ghost x3

Betty Blue Eyes x1

Legally Blonde x6

Lend me a Tenor x1

Grease x1

Mamma Mia x1

Rock of Ages x1

Priscilla x1

Wizard of Oz x1

I call it dedication… my parents call it a waste of money!

Another great moment was when I met my favourite YouTubers Katers17 and Cory Williams of SMP Films and Mean Kitty. They set up a fan meet up in Trafalgar Square, London back in September and caused quite a stir as they spent the whole day mingling with the crowd.

I’m hoping that 2012 will have lots more great things in store for me, I already have a few things in mind anyway. My new motto is to ‘live each day as if it’s you’re last’ – especially if this “end of the world” thing is true and we may not live to see 2013.
