Michael Pickering stars in All The Fun of The Fair.
A central role in David Essex’s new musical All The Fun of The Fair at the Garrick Theatre is that of Jack, the son of David Essex’s character Levi.
This role has gone to relative newcomer Michael Pickering. He’s no novice though, having made his West End debut in Wicked at the Apollo Victoria and swiftly followed this by taking the lead role High School Musical at the Apollo Hammersmith.
He then toured the world in Mamma Mia! before heading back to the UK and showcasing his talent at the Garrick Theatre. And with critics such as the Telegraph’s Charles Spencer hailing him as “”a fresh young talent to watch”, we expect much from Michael Pickering’s career.
Following All The Fun of the Fair, Michael will star as D’Artagnan in a new musical based on Alexandre Dumas’s classic tale The Three Musketeers, at the Rose Theatre, Kingston, Surrey from November 27. The show will also star Clive Rowe, Paul Thornley and Matt Rawle as the three Musketeers, and has a score by George Stiles, lyrics by Paul Leigh and book by Peter Raby and Francis Matthews.
One to watch.
