2017 is fast approaching and the first of our ATWW tour will be hitting Birmingham on the 28th January. But before we get to that, let's just rewind a minute and savour this little moment... So, we've got a great cast of people, but do you actually know them? Well, we thought we'd give you a little inside scoop on who these talented individuals are. - Almost like a 'through the key hole' meets Cilla Black's 'Blind Date'.
So, without further ado let's get the ball rolling...
1/ He loves to travel and enjoys new experiences... OK, let me stop right there! - Sorry single ladies, this one's taken and he's staying put. A family man, father to a wonderful daughter and loving partner to a special woman.
2/ "I can be a shy person on odd occasions but most of the time you'll see me in the middle making the most noise...” Well, I'm sure this lady will be making the most noise in all the right places! She's studying Drama, Applied Theatre and Performance at University. With the hopes of eventually teaching drama in a special needs school. - You go girl!
3/ He's both introverted and extroverted concurrently... so you might get a little tangled in this Bermudian web. Enjoys singing, artistic dance and his dietary preference is... wait for it... Vegan!
4/ It seems like this one couldn't resist - so he's back for a second time with FCP for ATWW. He'll be playing 'Abel' in our tour next year. He enjoys doing God's work by promoting His word and message.
5/ So this girl's a bit of an eater. A lover of all things good for the belly - 'Food, glorious food!'. But, besides her enormous passion for eating, she's been blessed with a gift, hoping to change lives one step at a time by pursuing drama to share stories.
6/ Well, he says he's not perfect... but he believes in the principles of God and tries to practice them. Always up for a good laugh and positive company - seems like he'll be great on any night out!
7/ This one's from the dirt south - South London that is! A lover of music, film and anything with chocolate in. She's hoping to do a degree in Sound Design (I never thought such a degree existed). And she's slightly obsessed with cats - hmmm... should we be worried?
8/ She has quite an unusual name... get it wrong once and she'll correct you, do it twice and she might not be as nice. One of five siblings and a go-getter. She's one of those uncomplicated kind of gal's and one who appreciates nature
9/ I liked this so much, I'm just going to let her take the stage. “A mother... and a grandma. Being ambitious, I thrive in taking passionate leaps and bounds towards my goals & dreams, which sometimes reveals my quixotic side! My wit may periodically rear its head, killing you with laughter - but never fear, being a paramedic I'll revive you... if I like you enough. Dining out, design and documentaries fill me with glee, and whilst I adore being around people, I also love time with ME!”.
10/ This one's a little all over the place (but in a good way!) Likes to keep active as well as watch athletics... a bit of a hiker (in different types of terrain), loves reading, creative writing and getting involved in charity projects. - How does she find the time to act?
11/ We have a Triple-Threat Alert!! I repeat... Triple-Threat! An all singing, acting and dancing individual who's performed in various locations such as Oval House Theatre, Soho Theatre and across the country. A teaching assistant who is also giving back to the community by teaching dance to pupils after school.
12/ "Jamaica, Jamaica!"... Hats off to this small island for instilling that old school discipline in the life of this young man. 6 years of experience in that sunny land and he's more determined than ever, now back in the U.K studying at Identity Drama School of Acting.
13/ A bit of a travel bug, with her favourite place being Brazil. She's the friendly type and enjoys The Arts (theatre and concerts), with a few quotes up her sleeve when prompted.
14/ We have a Professional in the building! He's played Leo in SKET at Park Theatre and has just finished filming a CBBC web series. He's energetic, imaginative and organised (organised? - that's quite impressive for a bloke!).
15/ "One of my secret loves is rom-coms [romantic comedies], and I always get real emotional at the end of sports movies... I can't help but shed a tear...” - Hmmm, I'm not sure how this will go down with your mates on a Saturday night though? #dontjudgeme
16/ Apparently God said no to him having two wives, so I'm afraid he's stuck with just the one! Enjoys being a family man with three children and likes the happier side of life.
17/ Another Jamaican connection - This one with a very close knit family. Seems like he wears two masks; an introvert (you wouldn't believe it were so!), a stark contrast to what he exudes when on stage. - I guess that's what makes him so interesting.
18/ She's not one of those boring bankers! She's a new breed of soca dancing, carnival going, drama loving, kind of bankers. - The ones who know how to work hard and play hard alike. This mum of 2 knows how to get down!
19/ Tall, dark and handsome… He’s one of those ‘ballers’, maybe even a shot caller. A fresh faced 18 year old who also happens to dabble in a little modelling too. #iwokeuplikethis
