Drama: Max Earns Starring Role in EYT Production


Bede’s Drama Scholar, Deis House boy and First Year pupil Max Mason found out this week that he has won the part in the upcoming Royal Hippodrome Theatre youth production of Beauty and the Beast, which will be staged on Wednesday 17 February.

Max will be taking on the part of Le Fou in the production, a local villager who is Gaston’s hapless sometimes mistreated, sidekick. 

Despite only having started at Bede’s in September, Max has already performed a solo at the black tie Cabaret event in November in front of 400 guests a moving rendition of ‘Where Is The Love’ from Oliver.

Mrs Karen Lewis, Director of Drama at Bede’s, said, "We are delighted that Max has won the role of Le Fou. It is a testament to his wonderful enthusiasm and commitment to his craft.  

"My advice is to take the opportunity to see him now whilst you can!"
