Studying down under

It's often one of the forgotten aspects of theatre life - but thank goodness for good understudies. Both GEORGE and HORRIBLE SCIENCE have relied on their understudies in the last fortnight - and thank goodness we took the time to find the two brilliant actors who have stepped into the breach of their respective shows.

Rik Warren had just four minutes to step into a lead role in HORRIBLE SCIENCE in the second week of the tour - and was a marvel. He has been in the show since then and done an amazing job - no-one would know he hadn't rehearsed for the role. A perfect performance.

Jason O'Brien meanwhile has been amazing audiences (and his employers) with a stunning performance as George and then Dad in GEORGE'S MARVELLOUS MEDICINE. From Giant Chicken to leading role in one svelt step!

Rik and Jason - you have our undying admiration and appreciation!
