Becky – Supported Artist
Dates with Face Front
I started at Broken Silence which is a Face Front group. At the time we were going to different places like old people’s homes in Palmers Green. That was more than 10 years ago.
I have done lots while I have been at Face Front. I have done a ‘Play in a Day’ at Edmonton Upper School. I also did a Glee Project at Durants Special School. I have done a few short plays with Annie including one at Forty Hall. I have also done plays that we performed at the Dugdale Theatre. Last year I also represented Face Front at an event that was put on by the Health Lottery were we met Simon Cowell and Venessa Feltz. I also got some money (£100) from Waitrose to donate to Face Front. Singing Training Emerging Actor Master Classes
How did you find out about Face Front Inclusive Theatre?
I found about Face Front when they came to Dazu to run a drama club in the evening. I was always interested in drama because I did a 2 year BTEC Performing Arts course with Chickenshed in Southgate. After that I did a 1 year drama foundation course with Access All Areas. I like Face Front because they are more social and inclusive than some other groups I have been in and it is very affordable. I think that drama helps you get through things.
What Face Front Projects have you been involved in?
I have been involved with the play The Princess of the Graveyard Palace where I auditioned for and got a part where I did some acting and dance. Over the last few years I have been with Broken Silence and InterACTion. With Broken Silence I was in Our Island and Sandwich Man where I did acting and dance. With InterACTion I was in The Determined and the Dammed and The Originators where I did acting and singing.
How has being a Supported Artist helped you develop?
I will be able to go on and do more projects with Face Front in schools and colleges. Face Front has given me a chance to move on and show that I can do other things. It has given me confidence to tell other people about Face Front because I now talk to people all the time about what Face Front does.
What are you doing now?
Now I am very happy to be working on The Myth of Marvo’s Millions with Broken Silence where I will be acting and supporting others in the group. Also, I am going to be in a play with InterACTion called Between the Wi and the Fi. I also work in a Charity Shop in Oakwood where we recently did a fashion show.
