Stockport Express - - History -

A TAL­ENTED young­ster has landed him­self a star­ring role in a Christ­mas pro­duc­tion at The Lowry The­atre.

James Allen, 12, is a pupil at St Am­brose Col­lege in Woodsmoor and is one of four young ac­tors play­ing the part of Michael Hobbs in Elf.

A few the­atre en­thu­si­asts may al­ready know him from pro­duc­tions such as Ham­let and Hus­bands and Sons, at the Royal Ex­change and James also played Benji in a pro­duc­tion of Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

He said: “I have re­ally en­joyed all my roles so far. You’re made to feel just like any other mem­ber of the cast and part of one big team.

“There re­ally is a strong com­mu­nity in the the­atre.”

And James is not the only tal­ented mem­ber if his fam­ily, with his brother Matthew also striv­ing for the­atre roles.
