A coachful of 50 BOST Members and friends took a day trip to London’s West End yesterday to cheer on young Brian Comer, who is playing the cake-guzzling Bruce in the RSC’s smash-hit musical, “Matilda,” at the Cambridge Theatre, Shaftsbury Avenue.
Brian first appeared with BOST in Disney’s “Beauty And The Beast,” when he played Chip, an endearing tea cup, the young son of Mrs Potts the teapot , with his dazzling smile and personality. His race into his mother’s arms, after their transformation back into human form, brought an emotional response from the audience at every performance. Since then, Brian played for us in “Oliver!” and “The Slipper And The Rose” and had been cast in “When The Lights Go On Again,” but was then called to London before our rehearsals began.
Being a part of this award-winning musical has really furthered Brian’s skills in singing, acting and dance and we were all so proud of Brian yesterday for his confident and energetic performance.
There seems no doubt that “Matilda” has whetted the youngster’s appetite for theatrical performance… Watch this space!!
