Debut 2018 – Industry Panel
This was my third year covering Debut, which is an industry panel discussion and a showcase for Musical Theatre graduates of Chichester University. An evening, to enjoy the talents of the Musical Theatre graduates and a chance for them to hear from professionals on their experiences. The graduates showcase their talents to friends, family and also hope of securing an agent to help to propel them into the industry full-time.
Once again I covered the industry panel in the afternoon by live tweeting key points, but this year I also captured it on film. So you can see what, Seiriol Davies, Carolyn Maitland, Ben Forster and Mark Shenton, hosted by Carl Woodward, can tell you of their experiences.
Below are two videos from the day.

I was, as I have been in previous years, very impressed with the level achieved in the evenings showcase. There were some fine vocals, strong stage presence and acting skills demonstrated. And with my casting hat on for Red Casting I also left with some headshots and will be making contact with these shortly.
My favourite numbers of the evening were:
What’s the Point In Coming Out?
In His Eyes
No-One But You
Raise The Roof
One thing, for sure there’s some huge talent among this years graduates and I look forward to seeing how they journey on through life post graduation.
Enjoy watching the insightful clips from the day, which includes auditions talk, whether to read reviews and so much more.
