British theatre composer Nick Butcher releases new video of ‘Heathers’ actress Rebecca Lock singing, ‘Alive’. The original song is the third video in Nick’s YouTube series, featuring stars of the West End. recently
“Alive, encourages us to step outside our comfort zones; to dare and be brave.”
Rebbeca Lockis currently playing Ms Flemming in Heathers, which recently transferred from The Other Palace to Theatre Royal Haymarket. Rebecca will be staring as ‘Lilli’ in Sheffield Crucibles ‘Kiss Me Kate’ this Christmas.
“London is alight with new musicals this summer”, says Nick. “It is great to be part of the movement. When singers like Rebecca step into the recording studio, it’s my job to provide the right environment, and then step back and let the rest happen. It’s magic to watch.”
Nick has a number of projects in development, and last month his Youtube series led to him be signed by top creative talent agent, Curtis Brown.“The response to my videos has been crazy; I’ve sent out over 200 copies of my sheet music. They seem to be really popular as audition songs.”
Nick says “I do have a big theatre project I’m working on, but I can’t talk about that yet. What I can say, is that it’s going to be a first for a musical.”
He is currently appearing in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘School of Rock’ at the newly renamed Gillian Lynne Theatre.
Nick’s song, ‘Somewhere In Between’, featured in Stephen Sondheim’s Best New Song Category 2018.
