A HAYES musical performer has just made his West End debut at the age of 21.

Harry Neale has started a six month stint playing the lead character in Dreamboats and Petticoats, which is on show at the Playhouse Theatre in Northumberland Avenue.

Mr Neale, who trained at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts for 12 years before graduating in in 2009, has previously been in the UK tour of Footloose which finished in July.

He said: “Words can’t describe how I feel about it. It’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do, it’s where I belong.

“The opening night was fantastic. It went better than expected, it was a really fantastic show. We’ve just got to keep it up now.”

Mr Neale will be playing Norman in Dreamboats and Petticoats until July.
