Local schoolboy, MJ Mytton Sanneh, age 11, has been attending the Grand from a young age and is a member of GET-IN! He got his big break on stage at the Grand and is currently playing the part of young Michael Jackson in the international tour of Thriller Live!
"I was about seven or eight when I did my first show at the Grand Theatre, that was Shakespeare For Kidz. I was the “Indian Prince”, I only had a few lines but I had to do quite a bit of acting. It felt amazing with all these people watching you. The first time you go on stage, there’s just an immense feeling in you, it’s really cool. The Grand Theatre is such a beautiful place to perform in.”
