BEN PURKISS

Acting/ Vocal coach

Training: Mountview Academy of Theatre arts.

 

Credits: Alternate Strat in The Original West End Cast of BAT OUT OF HELL (London Coliseum), Zorro in ZORRO- The Musical (premiering at the Hope Mill Theatre Manchester)- but sadly brought down by the Coronavirus! MacHeath in the International tour of THE BEGGAR'S OPERA, touring some of the most beautiful international Opera Houses and working with the prestigious Les Arts Florissant, headed by the World Renowned William Christie. My first job was with Samuel in ALLEGRO (Southwark Playhouse).

 

Ben was most recently seen in the Snow White Pantomime in Woking, at the New Victoria Theatre, playing Prince Harry of Horsham. 

Ben has been blessed enough to work in many genres of theatre, including Musical Theatre; and because of this experience he has developed an extremely varied teaching style and can work in detail within several genres of music.

 

His specialities include : Rock singing and ‘Safe’ rock singing, Opera and Operetta and Musical theatre. I also have a keen interest in Shakespeare and Poetry; so happy to work on pretty much anything you want to try, be it a new skill or something you have done before. 

Expect his lessons to be informative, comfortable and fun. In his personal life, he has seen and felt the benefits of what performing can do to a persons life; even if it isn’t something you want to do as a career!
