Junior Miss Cumbria’s Star Connections

Hey everyone!!

So I’ve had a quiet couple weeks finishing work for deadlines etc. I finish college in two weeks! This year has flown by!

This week I caught up with Britain’s Got Talent, has anyone seen Collabro? You may recognise local lad Matt Pagan a good friend of mine. I’ve known Matt for about 6 years, he joined stagedright youth theatre in 2009 in which we’ve done shows such as Peter Pan, beauty and the beast, west side story etc.

Matt has done the pubs and clubs circuit for 3 years, he played the prince in Carlisle’s panto last year and has also done a 6 month contract in Spain as a lead singer In a production cast. It’s lovely to see how far Matt has come over the past year, it just shows that hard work pays off.

He came back to visit stagedright days before the semi final it was so nice to see him and have a well needed catch up! Collabro sang stars from les miserables for their first audition and bring him home for the semi finals in which they won a place in the final this Saturday night! I wonder what they will sing?!

Everyone from stagedright and all their family and friends are behind Collabro to win! It’s such a hard industry to be in and they need all the support they can get so pick up the phone this Saturday and vote Collabro to win!!
