My name is James Gibbons and I’m currently a Sixth Former at St Josephs Catholic High School in Slough; studying AS Sociology and BTEC Grade 3 Performing Arts.

 

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, Windsor and Maidenhead Theatre Company (SWMTC) taking part in many of their productions, including their most recent (Titanic The Musical) at the Theatre Royal in Windsor.  And I was in the cast of the Royal Borough Youth Opera’s Sweeney Todd performed at Eton College's Farrer Theatre in July 2012.

 

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, Bracknell from 24th to 25th August 2013.

 

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 England and Wales, SC039863 in Scotland) and they will be happy to recognise companies and individuals who make donations on their website, newsletter and programme.

 

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.

 

Yours sincerely

 

James Gibbons

Aged 16
