WATCH: North-east man makes his West End debut in Meat Loaf musical

A north-east man has made his West End stage debut in the latest musical to hit London.

Christopher Cameron grew up in Peterhead and studied management at Robert Gordon University before deciding to move to the capital to study theatre.

The 27-year-old’s hard work has paid off after he landed a role in the ensemble for Bat Out of Hell: The Musical.

He is currently involved with the previews for the show, which is based on the hit albums of American rock star Meat Loaf.

Mr Cameron said the audience for the first performance on Monday at the Dominion Theatre were “insane.”

He said: “It was incredible being on stage. The audience was insane. They gave a standing ovation before the show even started and were standing and cheering throughout.

“The only way I can describe it is that it felt like being at a rock concert.

“I’ve always wanted to perform from a young age and the West End was always the dream.

“To think that this is now my life and that every evening I get to perform is mind-blowing.”

Mr Cameron said he had plenty of backing from his loved ones in the north-east as he was treading the boards.

He said: “All my friends and family have been so supportive. They can’t wait to come to London to see it.

“I was getting messages all throughout the day and evening from everyone checking in and wishing me the best. It was lovely to have that support system behind me.

“We have our official opening performance and my friends are all travelling to come see it. It’ll have a real buzz because everyone from the cast will have people in to support.”

Bat Out of Hell: The Musical officially opens at the Dominion Theatre in London on April 19.
