Home Sweet Home For Faye!

First some more bad news; well for me at least. Unfortunately I've had to postpone my next trip to the swamp :(

I was due to travel to Manchester to see Shrek this weekend but I've come down with a very heavy cold & have been forced to re-arrange my trip for Saturday 20th December.

Hopefully by then I'll be fighting fit & able to give Faye her Christmas present which is already wrapped and ready to go.

Below is another lovely article from the Manchester Evening News in which Faye tells us that performing at the Palace Theatre is likely to be the highlight of her tour.

Urmston Actress Starring in Shrek!

An actress from Trafford is appearing in the touring production of Shrek the Musical that is currently on at Manchester’s Palace Theatre. 

Faye Brookes, 27, has taken the starring role of Princess Fiona in the much-anticipated production, which she described as ‘the ideal part’.

She said: “I don’t know what girl wouldn’t love to play her. She is such a strong female character, but she is also a princess.”

Faye was born in Stretford before moving to Urmston in 2006, where her sister still lives. She went to Flixton Junior School before moving on to Knutsford High School, which has a strong reputation for drama. 

Shrek the Musical opened in July in Leeds before going on tour, and Faye said she has very much been looking forward to Manchester

“I think performing in Manchester is going to be the highlight of my tour,” she said. “I used to work in front of house at the Palace Theatre and I can’t believe I am going to be performing on that stage.

“I will be staying with my family when we come to Manchester and it will be great to be in my old room and get to spend time with them.”

After graduating from Knutsford, Faye attended the Guildford School of Acting as she wanted to focus on musicals, and didn’t want to move to London straight away.

Since then she has performed in a number of shows, including Legally Blonde for two years, and she recently finished filming for BBC drama Our Zoo, which tells the story of Chester Zoo.
