A TALENTED Halesowen youngster has just finished a West End run of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical School of Rock.

The 11-year-old former Howley Grange Primary School pupil is now back studying at Earls High School after his unforgettable experience.

Proud mother Julie Egerton said: "He was playing the role of Matthew, the roadie in the band.

"It was his West End debut, and there were 39 children in total which made up 3 teams of 13 and share the shows between them.

"He was lucky enough to get to perform at The Olivier Awards at The Royal Albert Hall, with School of Rock a couple of weeks ago.

"He's now finished his run in The West End and is settling into school at Earls."

Harry has also starred in Footloose The Musical at The Alexandra Theatre and appeared in an episode of CBBC's All Over the workplace, where they followed him trying out the job he hoped to pursue as a career.

It culminated in him performing in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at The Yorkshire Playhouse Theatre in Leeds. Last Christmas he performed in Cinderella - The worlds biggest panto at The Barclaycard arena with Paul O'Grady, Bradley Walsh and Dick and Dom.

The multi-talented actor had lessons with Chris Groucutt (whose late father was Kelly Groucutt of ELO).

Mrs Egerton added: "With his first pay cheque Harry bought himself a guitar which two of the boys that he lives with in the house are teaching him to play."

He also goes to the Jordon School of Dance and performing Arts taking classes in a variety of styles of dance as well as gymnastics.
