Ashleigh Gray and Chris Passey Interviews [07 Mar 2011|03:10pm]


This week we're delighted to bring you to great interviews. We speak to the talented Chris Passey about his new charity project. Later in the show we speak with Ashleigh Gray, we speak about Wicked and what she is up to. We also have exciting news from Perfect Pitch Musicals.

About Chris Passey
A self taught pianist, Chris is a West Midlands based Composer/Lyricist, Musical Director and Vocal Coach.

Chris has a natural love for Musical Theatre and having trained with the National Youth Theatre, pursued this passion straight from Sixth Form College. In late 2006, Chris entered Chicago Rock Cafe's 'Rock Idol' contest, judged by Carrie and David Grant. Out of six thousand contestants and several National heats, Chris came second to Keith Jack, who went on to appear in BBC1's Any Dream Will Do.

About Ashleigh Gray
Ashleigh Gray is a British musical theatre performer who recently appeared as the standby for Elphaba in the London production of Wicked.

In 2004, Gray made her professional début as Kim in the UK national tour of the Boy George musical Taboo. She was also a soloist in the concert Notes from New York. Prior to this she played the role of Kirsty in Only You Can Save Mankind at the Edinburgh Festival. In 2006, she appeared in NHS the Musical at the Drum Theatre Plymouth and covered Rizzo and Jan in the UK national tour of Grease. In 2007, Gray performed the role of Emily in the European première of Myths and Hymns and again that year at the Finborough theatre.

On July 16, 2007, she joined the London company of the musical Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, where she performed in the ensemble and understudied the role of Elphaba. She played her first performance as Elphaba on February 6, 2008. She then became standby for the role of Elphaba, replacing Cassidy Janson on June 9, 2008. She left the show on March 27, 2010, with her last performance as Elphaba taking place on March 12.

Alexia Khadime Bonus Interview [06 Mar 2011|12:15am]


In this, our first bonus interview podcast, we give you the whole interview with Alexia Khadime. She speaks about all sort of interesting things, from her early career to institutional racism that can sometimes be in the theatre.

Khadime's most high profile role was as the lead "Elphaba" in the London production of Wicked. She permanently took over the role from Kerry Ellis on 11 May 2009, having previous filled in from June to November 2008 whilst Ellis played the role on Broadway. Khadime was the first black woman to be cast in the role full time. As being the first black woman to play the role, a special green make-up had to be made by mixing three different shades of green by MAC cosmetics.
