Congratulations to Dramacube student Tom Stephens who recently won an award for Script Writing and Inspired Performance as part of the annual Rose Theatre Awards. He was presented by children’s author Jaqueline Wilson.
Tom joined Dramacube in July 2015 when he successfully auditioned for our production of Fame Jr. which was performed at Hampton Hill Theatre. Tom was cast as student, Schlomo Metzenbaum, a central character in the show. He joined an extremely talented cast who, guided by director Matthew Bunn, produced a truly brilliant show. Tom went onto play the lead role of Edmund in the musical adaptation of The Lion, the Witch & The Wardrobe, also at Hampton Hill Theatre before being cast as the charismatic Oliver Warbucks in Annie JR. at Questors Theatre in Ealing.
“Tom is a very talented young performer and we’ve always been impressed with his versatility” says Dramacube Productions’ Artistic Director, Stephen Leslie. Tom demonstrated this versatility again when he returned to Dramacube in August 2016 to take on the leading role of the despicable Mr. Wormwood in the musical adaptation of Matilda. “It comes as no surprise that Tom has won this award and we wish him every success with his on-going writing and performing”.
