Which roles do you play in The Great Gatsby? Jay, Nick and Chester (Myrtle's apartment) What have you enjoyed most about working on Gatsby? It's been great to get back on stage this season after injury and what a production to come back to! It's has very in depth characters, which is what I always enjoy developing as we go through the season. Describe your perfect night in... Good food, nice bottle of wine with friends or, weather permitting, a BBQ (fingers crossed for good eather this year!)

I’m a dancer with the company so my usual day consists of a ballet class each morning followed by rehearsals for the current repertoire. Dancing was a passion of mine from a young age, but after seeing numerous different performances, Northern Ballet included, encouraged me to pursue dancing as a career.

Graham Kotowich, Tobias Batley, Sebastian Loe and Ashley Dixon limbered up for a pancake race, before displaying their individual flipping skills! Were still not sure who the clear winner was either!
