Gareth Gates starring role came from his recent rise back into the public eye- making him one to watch in the musical world after receiving raving reviews for his performance of the UK tour of Footloose.
Leading man, Gareth, said: “It’s a show that will appeal to many people, as even if you don’t know the individual musicals, you will probably know the songs.
“There has been some amazing music to come out of theatre shows in the last few decades, so we will be paying homage to them. Some shows I have appeared in and some will be new songs for me to sing, which is what I’m looking forward to”
Throughout Gareth’s 14 year career he has always been on stage whether it be performing his number 1 hits to playing “Joseph” for Andrew Lloyd Webbers production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
“It’s great to connect with an audience live. And when I’m singing I don’t have a stutter! I can connect with an audience through music, which I love.”
Tickets are available from the Princes Theatre, Clacton-on-Sea.
