Performed by Lizzie Bea
Louise Dearman (Wicked, Guys and Dolls) singing our song Home from the song cycle, Belongings. This was shortlisted for the Stiles & Drewe Best New Song prize and featured in the concert on Sunday 5th July 2020. You can watch the full concert at YouTube.com/stilesanddrewe.

This is the finalé in the show, and it sees a mother explaining to her daughter that home isn’t about where you grow up or how big a place is, but is about your relationship to it: If you fill a house with memories and people that you care about, it will feel as warm as your childhood home, and your family will always be there to guide you in your mind even after they’re gone.
STARSTRUCK
Performed by  Jessica Donnelly
Lizzie Bea (Hairspray, Heathers) singing our song Bottle It. This was shortlisted for the Stiles & Drewe Best New Song prize and featured in the concert on Sunday 5th July 2020. You can watch the full concert at YouTube.com/stilesanddrewe.

Bottle It is a song from Tanya, a show about a girl who desperately wants to fit in with the other stereotypically fake-tanned, glam Essex girls. Due to her job as a bottler in a tanning factory, Tanya has permanently stained hands which makes her paleness even more obvious. When she has to deliver a message to her crush, Brad, she puts on a face mask to hide her paleness and he only sees her super fake-tanned hands, causing him fall head over heels in love with her. Returning back to work, she finds a love letter from Brad stuffed in one of the tan bottles and becomes extremely excited, dreaming about a future life with Brad, but having to repeatedly tell herself to calm down and ‘bottle’ her feelings.

BOTTOMS UP
Performed by  graduates of the
Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
Julia Murray singing our song Someone Else's Life. This was recorded live for SIGNAL, an online concert, hosted by Adam Lenson Productions on the 26th May 2020. You can watch the full concert at ALPmusicals.com/concerts. 

Set towards the end of WW1, Someone Else’s Life is sung by a Belgian mother who fled to the UK as a refugee and is bringing up her child in a strange new place. Her son has started to speak English rather than Dutch, and the mother is reflecting on how different his upbringing has been to what she originally planned, whilst also grieving for her husband who died during the war.
In association with The Grad Fest, here is our song Bottoms Up, performed by our friends and fellow members of the musical theatre class of 2020 from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, as part of 'Beyond Proud', an online festival celebrating LGBT+ History Month.

This song is from the show Bon Appétit, a short immersive musical, and is the first song that we both collaborated on. A camp Gilbert & Sullivan pastiche, Bottoms Up is the story of two guys on a date, but it was never meant to be...
