A north-east man will be hitting the high notes on the high seas as he embarks on a career as a cruise ship singer.
Robbie Mackenzie, from Newmachar, has been hired as a singer onboard the MS Marella Dream.
The former Dyce Academy and Glasgow Academy of Musical Theatre pupil was recruited by Yorkshire based Peel Entertainment following hotly contested nationwide auditions.
He will now present an impressive itinerary of 11 shows – performed twice nightly on a consecutive two week rotation – throughout a 10 month tour of the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean.
Robbie said: “This will be my first cruise with Marella, so I am incredibly excited.
“The whole process has been really enjoyable – from the auditions at Pineapple Dance Studios in London to the last 10 weeks where myself and the team have lived and worked together 24/7 to get all the shows ready.
“It’s been very demanding as I perform several solos, including ‘Shake a Tail Feather’ in the Blues Brothers inspired show – but I have enjoyed every minute and can’t wait to become part of the Marella team.”
