Michael Watson - Musical Theater / Voice Coach and singing Tutor
Michael Watson is best known for playing Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys in the West End and On tour.. Where he won many awards for his portrail of the legendary singer
Michael Watson is a home-grown Essex boy. He grew up in Clacton-on-Sea and began his theatre training there as a student of the Tiffany Stage Academy. He tirelessly worked towards his dream of performing on stage professionally, and at just sixteen years old, he won a scholarship to the Tiffany Theatre College in Southend. He graduated from the school’s Musical Theatre course in 2006.
After two years of training, Watson took his first steps into the professional world of stage performance and immediately made great strides by securing a role in We Will Rock You and simultaneously making his West End debut. He spent the next two years at the Dominion Theatre performing in the show’s ensemble before moving on and achieving another goal: being part of a show’s original London cast. He joined the company of new musical Imagine This at the New London Theatre, once again as an ensemble member but also as 1st cover to the role of Billy. He features on the musical’s original cast recording.
Watson’s West End theatre credits continued to rack up in 2009 as he went on to appear in another original London cast, this time in Broadway transfer Sister Act. He performed in the ensemble on his biggest stage yet, the London Palladium, appearing alongside the show’s star Patina Miller and once again featuring on the cast recording. As his experience grew, so did his opportunities, and he once again found himself as 1st cover; this time understudying the roles of TJ and Dinero. He ended the year with that classic British tradition that few stage performers can resist: pantomime. He played the title role in Jack and the Beanstalk at the Radlett Theatre, completing the rite of passage that most performers go through.
His time in the panto proved to be something of a good omen. He found himself back in the West End in the original London cast of his third musical and in somewhat familiar territory in his ensemble role of Jack and the Beanstalk. He appeared on stage with the likes of Nigel Lindsay, Amanda Holden, Richard Blackwood and Nigel Harman, and sometimes in the more prominent role of Pinocchio, for which he was 1st cover.
Watson left the show in 2012 and was involved in a number of projects throughout the year. He travelled to the Deutsches Theatre, Munich in the cast of Hair The Musical as a Tribe member and 1st cover to Woof. He also shared a stage with Su Pollard as Rooster in the international tour of Annie and played Billy the DJ in the tour of musical Disco Inferno. In addition to this, he also appeared in the Chess Anniversary Concert at the Royal Albert Hall with Kerry Ellis and Idina Menzel, played Woof in the charity gala performance of Hair The Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre for Help For Heroes and was involved in the work-shops for Ghost The Musical, In Touch and All or Nothing.
