Jamie has just completed studying his first year of A levels at Limavady Grammar School, where he has performed in many of their school productions, Spring and Christmas Concerts, but most recently as Mr. Crocker in their Christmas production of “Back to the 80’s”. Where his rendition of “Man in the Mirror” was amazing.

Jamie was also cast to play the role of “Skimbleshanks” in the Millennium Forum Youth Theatre’s production of “Cats” in the summer of 2018, and in July this year you will see him again on stage in the Production of “Legally Blonde” where he has been cast as one of the “Harvard Boys”.
