Our amazing SYMPHONY actors have been beavering away over the last 2 weeks, weaving live music with spoken word to bring Tom, Nick and Ella’s stories to life. With the show opening tonight, we thought high time to properly introduce them and give them the shout-out they deserve…
Remy Beasley joins us fresh from the National Theatre Wales’ latest festive show, Silly Kings, performed in Cardiff Castle. With other National Theatre Wales credits under her belt, plus past work with director Joe Murphy including the barnstorming all-female Taming Of The Shrew for Shakespeare’s Globe and Fairy Tales for nabokov, oh AND she was in Symphony the first time round too – we know we’re in safe hands. She’s on bass, guitar, and vocals.
Jack Brown and Iddon Jones also performed in Symphony’s first run. Jack boasts various screen credits and last year was in Michael Grandage’s psychedelic West End Midsummer Night’s Dream opposite Sheridan Smith and David Walliams. And he’s got a pretty decent musical range – in Symphony playing guitar, drums, bass and harmonica, plus vocals of course. Iddon originates from Anglesey, North Wales; he attended Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, and while there received the Gyearbuor Asante Prize, a Laurence Olivier (Personal Manager's Association Award) and a John Thaw Foundation Award for acting. He played Moritz in DEFFRO’R GWANWYN (Welsh translation of Spring Awakening) and Llew Llaw Gyffes in BLODEUWEDD, both for Theatr Genedlaethol. Other stonking classical credits include Adrian Noble's Tempest at Theatre Royal Bath and A Christmas Carol at Birmingham Rep. And new writing work includes The Best Years of Your Life and First Time Voters for nabokov, Playlist for Theatre503, and Crazy Gary’s Mobile Disco for Sheer Drop Theatre. He’s on guitar, drums, and vocals.
Last but not least, Adam Sopp has Starred as Ringo (yes, I know) in a North American tour of the Beatles musical Backbeat, just recently worked with Ruth Wilson on The El Train at Hoxton Hall, and also honed his festival credentials with outdoor performances at Glastonbury and Wilderness festivals for Red Not Dead (Shakespeare’s Globe Education project). He’s on keyboard and drums. And vocals! (Got it? This show has singing in.)
