Oxford Debut for OA Grace Albery
King’s College OA, Grace Albery, has recently landed a lead role in the Halfwit Theatre production of Sweet Charity, which runs at the Oxford Playhouse from 31st January to 3rd February.
The Broadway musical follows the misadventures of Charity Hope Valentine, a New York dancer who always gives her heart to the wrong man. Grace will be playing the role of Nicki, Charity’s best friend.
The former King’s pupil, who left the school in 2017, currently reads psychology and linguistics at Worcester College, Oxford, where she is highly involved in the university’s drama scene.
Before moving to Oxford, she performed in a number of school productions, with roles including Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz and Maria in The Sound of Music.
Head of Drama, Harriet Agg-Manning, who will be taking a group of pupils to the show, said: “Grace is hugely talented in all aspects of performance and I am so proud to see her treading the boards in Oxford. We cannot wait to see her on the stage again.”
There is no doubt that this high-energy performance, packed with feel good songs including Big Spender and If My Friends Could See Me Now, is set to sweep audiences off their feet.
