Monica Or starring as Fiona Silverton
Last year I delivered a 'Star Quality' performance in Springboard’s Aladdin as a dancing Genie Gem and also had a dance solo as a talented management trainee...
This year I have a named role and will be playing ‘Fiona Silverton’ a TV news reporter, as well as being a dancing waiter in 'Dick Whittington'.
Expect plenty of fun as Dick travels to London to start his career as a chef - with a little help from some all-singing and all-dancing hospitality characters along the way!
I will be braving the boards once more, this time in front of an audience of 400 (which could include you!) To do this I have pledged to raise £200 for Springboard by taking part and I need your support to help me do this, so please donate on this page.
If you would also like to come along and see me on stage the show will run over four nights from Tuesday 29 January until Friday 1 February 2019 at the Leicester Square Theatre in the West End.

The Hospitality Industry's Pantomime
The Hospitality Industry’s Pantomime is back – and we plan on making it bigger and better than ever! A cast of 50 amateur actors from the industry will brave a West End stage to perform our Springboard adaptation of a panto classic – the famous Dick Whittington!
Support their brave decision to jump out of their comfort zone and onto the stage, giving up a significant amount of their time to rehearse a fantastic show; which we hope you will come and watch!
The panto will raise vital funds for The Springboard Charity. If we can raise our overall income target of £50,000 then this will fund two new employability programmes supporting 30 people who are unemployed and face real barriers to sustaining their a job. Springboard will be able to build their confidence, their skills and provide long term mentoring to ensure that they find a fulfilling career; changing their future.
Springboard will be taking over London’s Leicester Square Theatre for four spectacular nights from 29th January – 1st February 2019. The cast includes everyone from Springboard's beneficiaries, its partner employers - both at the top and just starting, and even a few Springboard staff and board members!
