Sam is currently studying for a Professional Diploma in Musical Theatre at Performance Preparation Academy in Guildford.
His theatrical roles include: Horton in “Seussical”, Friedrich in “The Sound of Music”, Drake in “Honk!”, and Troy in “High School Musical”.
He started training in the performing arts aged 10, taking classes in all three disciplines of dance, drama, and singing. He trained for two years at the Italia Conti Arts Centre in Merrow, studying for a BTEC Diploma in Performing Arts. After this, he successfully auditioned for Disneyland Paris, and completed a seven-month contract as a Character and Parade Performer. Whilst there, he was selected to perform in both the Halloween and Christmas cavalcades, as a Pumpkin Boy and Jack in the Box respectively.
Sam is a strong believer that the performing arts is a fantastic way to help children grow in confidence and self-esteem, and is keen to encourage them to reach their potential.
