Nineteen-year-old soprano Alice Howell will be giving a one-woman performance at The Cut theatre in Halesworth.

Accompanied on the piano by Will Drew-Batty from Bungay, Alice will perform on Thursday, July 6 at 7.30pm.

Her repertoire will include popular songs from musical shows and also classical works sung in English, German, French and Italian.

Alice’s talent as a singer first came to light as a 12-year-old at Halesworth Middle School when she sang in the role of Maid Marion in the school’s pantomime production of Robin Hood.

This was followed in 2011 in the Mini Mouth’s production of GCSE-The Musical at The Cut and in 2012 the same company’s production of Aladdin.
