Lily Laight returns to the West End

CONGRATULATIONS Lily- we are delighted to be able to share the news that Lily has been cast to appear again on the London's West End Stage, in the show, HAIRSPRAY at London's Coliseum Theatre, starring alongside Michael Ball & Paul Merton.


Here is Lily's last programme entry, when she appeared here at the Babbacombe Theatre in Wonderful Christmastime.

Lily was born into a theatrical family and took her first steps on to the stage at only 2 years old! She first appeared at the Babbacombe Theatre aged 7, as part of the Kidz Aloud troupe. following her success, a year later, in the Torbay’s Got Talent contest, she was invited back as a soloist for, ‘The Christmas Laughter Party’ and has since featured regularly in the theatres Thursday Night and Christmas productions. 

Stage, Television & big screen credits seem quite unthinkable for someone who is still only 17! But already Lily has achieved a notable CV, that includes Amanda Thripp, in the original cast of the multi award winning RSC show, ‘Matilda the Musical’ in London’s West End, the Comic Strip’s 30th Anniversary TV film, ‘Five go to Rehab’ and a guest lead role in ITV’s, ‘Doc Martin’.  Her movie credits include ‘Frequencies’ which opened in America to rave reviews, as did the film ‘In Secret’ & ‘Love Rosie’ which had global successes and she was cast in Les Misérables.

Always a firm favourite, Lily has literally grown up in front of our audiences’ eyes and will surely become one of this country’s leading ladies soon, just remember you saw her here first.
