Talented Isle of Man performer Georgia Maddocks has completed her final group showcase at the London School of Musical Theatre (LSMT).

In the final showcase, which gives musical theatre students an opportunity to perform publicly together in a London Theatre and put into action what they have learned over the past year, Georgia and her group performed ‘Lock up your Daughters’, a musical based on an 18th century comedy.

Georgia commented: ‘The group showcase was a great experience which I have taken away so much from. The show mirrored the demand experienced by professionals in a West End show, from the auditions to the wardrobe fittings, so I feel very prepared for the future.

‘To work alongside such talented performers and be coached by truly inspirational teachers and industry experts has been incredible, and I couldn’t wish for a better start to my musical theatre career.

‘I am so grateful to be given this opportunity and I can’t thank Stuart and the team at Auxesia enough. Not only have they provided me with financial assistance to help meet the costs of the course and living in London, but their advice and guidance over the past nine months has been invaluable.’

Next up at LSMT Georgia will perform her final individual showcase in front of Theatre Agents. This is an opportunity for the students to build their portfolio and where they hope to be talent spotted for West End shows.

Stuart Colligon, Director at Auxesia, said: ‘We are so impressed with Georgia and how well she is doing at LSMT. It’s a reflection of our appetite for helping business leaders to succeed - offering just the right amount of support and guidance to help them grow and flourish - we are passionate about helping talented individuals to reach their potential.

‘It continues to be a pleasure to help Georgia, she has so much natural talent and we have no doubt her ambition of having a long and successful career in musical theatre is well within her reach.’

The 20-year-old from Douglas was one of just 42 students selected from more than 750 applicants, to win a place on the one-year Musical Theatre Course.
