...y'know, the posh girl from Nancy school whose parents were opera singers, is now she's the understudy for Christine in Phantom!
http://www.oakham.rutland.sch.uk/New...usic/katie.htm

Thats a pretty big deal considering Christine is very demanding vocally and Katie's only 17.

I always did like her voice... completly wrong for Nancy mind you but this looks perfect for her. Although as I said I do worry about the demands of it on a 17 year old girl, (especially since they don't bother to pre-record the highnotes for the understudy like they do for the main Christine)

If she's only 17 now then she would have been 15 during the Nancy auditions, highly unlikely I would say.

Katie has been camping in the Nancy Nancy thread.

Cosette in Les Mis London
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etNoMVn5Cq4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxYXa6LYoo0 under-estimates how high she and Nancy used to hit the last note.

Cosette in the Les Mis tour ...with the person commenting who thinks she sings too high cpmpared to the others .....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9p1qPGkLXpw

Think she was 17 when she was in Phantom.

The London EPK from 2009 shows Katie acting - but bizarrely doesn't let her sing........apart from nailing the end of One Day More......

In my life with the strange person commenting who thinks the female tour lead who is actually singing Les Mis properly is the one who is wrong..........

Katie Hall can be seen, is interviewed and does the show advert at the end (but isn't heard singing) in the second Les Mis Tour backstage video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OhczD-YoZ0

and is also on the Tour EPK - where again they don't let the best female singer in the show sing, although you can hear her on one day more.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77br_...eature=related

She's playng girl 5 in "Turning" in the O2 concert according to Twitter . There's an awful lot of other great past Cosette's in the concert doing anything but sing Cosette, so she's in good company.

Katie is also on the Tour Live CD . She's in In My Life, A Heartful of Love, One Day More and The Reprise of Heartful of Love - mostly with Gareth Gates . There are free excerpts of the mp3s. Earl Carpenter and John Owen Jones are excellent too.

Her twitter page goes from how little she is doing to "Heavens above, what a day" on the 28th...........she may have been playing or had some news ?? And she's now calling Lea Salonga (the O2 Fantine) her current mummy.

The O2 online programme has changed
http://25.lesmis.com/cast-and-creatives/katie-hall/

and as you say its got a nice little CV.

and Katie has posted a picture of the O2 with a suitable comment,
http://plixi.com/p/47921332


and Lucie Jones, the London Queens Cosette, has just confirmed the story on her twitter.....

Camilla Kerslake was doing it, so its a late change.

Certainly strengthens the show having someone who can sing and act the role well , adds a lot of vocal power and looks and sounds right in the cast - she's just got a new father and love interest to practice singing with.

Well done Katie Hall . Thats two girls from the Nancy show in the O2 cast.........

Epic. even if they spelt her name wrong. She gets Alfie an opera singer to sing with and Nick Jonas to kiss - great ..............unless the Jonas fans are too jealous.

One Day More - interesting view of what everyone sings with Katie on final note duty.

Amazingly clairvoyant by me.

Katie Hall has just announced she will be alternate Christine in Phantom from Sept 5. The alternate (Tabitha Webb) currently does two shows a week plus extras. I think John Owen Jones is still there as Phantom then, which should be a great pairing.

Katie has started as alternate Christine in Phantom and she's also in the Phantom 25th anniversary show - though Sierra Boggess is Christine there.
Katie is pretty phenomenal in the role - highly recommended . She's currently doing Mondays and thursdays evenings . Not sure what days the alternate will be doing from November when matinee days change.

Katie Hall has been cast as lead Christine in the Phantom of The Opera 2012-13 international tour alongside John Owen Jones and Earl Carpenter as her Phantoms.

Its visiting Plymouth, Manchester, Bristol.Dublin, Leeds, Milton Keynes, Cardiff, Southampton, and one report adds Liverpool and Birmingham, between February 2012 and May 2013.

http://www.thephantomoftheopera.com/...rom-march-2012
......................

Katie sings Phantom of the opera aged 17 or 18 (or at least she does, with Ramin, till the recording cuts out abruptly) She's just turned 21 and is even more powerful now.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obn4Woyf2Vg
.............
There's also a youtube of the Les Mis tour of 2010 (labelled wrongly) with Katie acting Cosette on stage .
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Txp6kWuNYGQ

...............
A lot of the Les Mis 25th Anniversary O2 show youtubes have vanished. This one is still up of that version - with Sam Barks too.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7206X...eature=related Katie from 7-25.

She's been getting some great reviews.
