My name is James Gibbons and I'm currently a Sixth Former at
St Josephs Catholic High School in
Ever since I was little I've been passionate about singing. My Mum will tell you that I could sing before I could talk (she'll tell you Robbie Williams' "Angels" was a firm favourite as a 2 year old in the back of her car).
Over the past few years I've been fortunate enough to be a
member of Slough,
I'm sure from the above you'll understand why one of my other passions is performing in musical theatre.
Recently, I was thrilled to be offered a place with Youth
Music Theatre UK (YMT), a national theatre company for young. They've asked me to join "Soul Music," a
residential musical theatre course which will be held in Godalming from 12th to
25th August 2013. The project
covers all aspects of music theatre and we will work with an experienced
artistic staff to develop skills in writing, composing and choreography. The course will culminate in a performance at
the Wilde Theatre,
I am trying to raise the funds needed for my course fee of £1,215. The costs cover all my accommodation, food and pastoral care.
YMT is a registered charity (number 1103076 in
If you have any queries or wish to discuss this request with a member of YMT staff please phone Anna or Richard in the office on 0844 4154858.
Many thanks for taking time to read this letter, and I look forward to hearing from you.
