Alex Townend

Vocal Coach

I played Violin and Glockenspiel as a child, performing with the Calderdale Youth Orchestra. I was a member of Starlite Singers as a student of singing lessons between the age of 8 and 18, performing locally.

I started performing at the local theatre, Todmorden Hippodrome age 10 and can still be seen singing the principal role in theatres locally.

In previous roles I have played, Mabel, Charity, Lola, Eliza Dolittle, Morticia Adams, Rusty, Mimi, Suki and Iris and my next performance is as Eva Peron in Evita!
