More about me...
From a young age theatre has been a great passion of mine. Everything about the theatre excites and fascinates me, from the actual shows to the production of the show.
My love of musical theatre has been driven by the obstacles that have come along in my life, which have been difficult at times, but have never stopped me from achieving my goals and enjoying my favourite thing to do.
My love of musicals first came from when I was only a baby, so my family told me. I was born with a rare leukaemia and then later on in my life being diagnosed with having a rare condition called mirage syndrome. During the long days that I spent in hospital whilst having my bone marrow transplant, donated by my older sister, I always had a Disney CD playing. As I grew up I moved on to The Wiggles (yes I know..haha), that was until I saw my first ever musical at the Sheffield Lyceum at the age of three, Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat. This then led onto what some might call an obsession with musical theatre shows, especially after seeing my first West End Musical, Wicked, at the age of five.
This led to me seeing so many shows in Regional Theatres and the West End I have lost count. My condition hasn’t stopped me from doing what I love. With going on to being cast in two pantomimes (Peter Pan at the Sheffield City Hall, and Sheffield Lyceum). I have also been involved in the last two consecutive years with STOS in 2021 and 2022 at the Sheffield Lyceum in ELF and Sunshine on Leith. All at the same time as attending college doing Performing Arts to learn more about being on or behind stage.
Since 2020 during the Covid pandemic I found my other passion and that was blogging and what not better way than to combine my love of theatre and my new passion to create "HarryTheatreLife"
This blog will bring you my life as a theatre fan. From going to shows sharing my thoughts and feelings on topics within the theatre community and also how it's helped me through my medical challenges, which I hope will inspire other theatre fans with a disability (visible or nonvisible).
