Kris RawlinsonKris Rawlinson & Friends is on 16th May at the Pheasantry in Chelsea and we caught up with the cast during rehearsals. Each of them told us where they met Kris, what they like about him and something that not many people know about him.

 

 

Alex Da Silva

Where did you meet Kris?
I met Kris when I was working on one of my favourite jobs ever, Streets at the Cockpit Theatre. Kris, a guy called Tom Wright and I were the only ones in the cast to enjoy a good camp musical theatre warm up – so we bonded very fast!

What do you like about working with Kris?
If you’re flat, he willl tell you. Only honesty with our Kris. That and his extensive musical theatre knowledge. If he says ‘Learn a song, because you’re perfect for it!’ – don’t question him.

What’s something not many people know about Kris?
His first name is Kristopher (Not really…it’s actually Kristian but I ALWAYS used to call him Kristopher by accident and it annoyed him every time).

 

Sam Lupton

Where did you meet Kris?
I met Kris when working on a charity concert. We clicked instantly, got on very well and had very similar taste in theatre and performance. It’s very easy for us to have a laugh with each other while we work. There’s a chemistry that I hope translates to the stage when we perform together.

What do you like about working with Kris?
He’s very passionate about the work he does. That makes for a very fun rehearsal room. He’s always striving for more from the performers he works with. It’s just brilliant fun.

What’s something not many people know about Kris?
He has a pet tortoise that lives under his bed, I’ve never met said tortoise so it could all be a complete lie. I’ll let you know if I ever find out.

 

Ambra Caserotti

Where did you meet Kris?
I met Kris when he stepped in for a Rent rehearsal.

What do you like about working with Kris?
He is always very creative and honest with his musicians and performers, which makes it easy to improve.

What’s something not many people know about Kris?
He once recorded me cracking and continues to play it to various people on various occasions! 😀

 

Katherine Moraz

Where did you meet Kris?
I met Kris after a gig he’d done with my boyfriend. We had a few drinks, went to Balans and made silly videos of us saying stupid things. The rest is history.

What do you like about working with Kris?
I think he’s incredibly talented. He is taking steps to make the industry fresh and interesting. His arrangements are clever and intricate. Plus, he’s a laugh – what more could you want.

What’s something not many people know about Kris?
He does a mean Miranda Sings impression!

 

Sam Toland

Where did you meet Kris?
I met Kris when I was 17 and taking part in a production of Our House.

What do you like about working with Kris?
My favourite thing about working with Kris is how much fun we have in rehearsals. Having been friends for such a long time means that we have a good laugh whenever we work together.

What’s something not many people know about Kris?
He is not only a great musician, he is also great at crafts! We once did a production of Little Shop of Horrors together, and as well being the Musical Director on the show, Kris also made every incarnation of Audrey 2.

 

Kayleigh Mc Knight

Where did you meet Kris?
Kris was a name I had often heard from one of my best friends, Jodie (who is also in this show), and I finally got to put a face to the name during Starting Here, Starting Now, which was a pleasure! We only met a couple of weeks ago, but I am so pleased we have finally crossed paths.

What do you like about working with Kris?
Kris is really easy to work with. He’s honest, but also allows your own opinions on how you want a piece to work.

What’s something not many people know about Kris?

He makes excellent banana muffins!

 

Jodie Steele

Where did you meet Kris?
I met Kris performing at a singer soirée gig on the barge. I was doing a Celine Dion duet with Jordan lee Davies.

What do you like about working with Kris?
My favourite thing about working with Kris is how honest we both are with one another. He’s my best friend so he tells me when something is awful. Which is of so much more use than being told it sounds ok.

What’s something not many people know about Kris?
Kris is an amazing cook!
