A SOUTH Bromsgrove High School student will take to the stage in one of the lead roles in Guys and Dolls at Birmingham’s Old Rep theatre, writes Charlotte Tomlinson.
Rui Greaves plays Nicely Nicely Johnson in the Birmingham Youth Theatre’s production from Thursday to Saturday, June 20 to 22.
Rui performed in All and Sundry’s Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime in December and starred in the BMOS’ production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Alexandra Theatre.
Rui’s mum Cathy said he was very excited about his latest role, very enthusiastic about his future as a theatre performer and he hoped to work in TV and film in the future.
Cathy is immensely proud of him and what he had achieved so far, adding she saw his flair for acting when he appeared as an elf in a play at his primary school.
Rui has recently been accepted into the renowned Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA) for performing arts.
