We were in Dublin recently to exhibit at Perform Ireland, Ireland’s biggest musical theatre event. Fortunately, just down the road, #AMTAFamily grads Ethan Davis and Karis Jack were performing in Motown the Musical! We were lucky enough to grab the last two tickets in the house and watch the Friday evening performance.
Bord Gais Energy Theatre was host to latest leg of the musical’s UK tour. The tour is currently due to run until 2020, so it’ll be keeping our grads very busy over the next few months! Motown is the next in a long line of success stories from our brilliant #AMTAFamily!
Karis (2013 Grad) joined the tour having previously played Eponine in Les Miserables in the West End. She also appeared in Urinetown (West End), Little Shop of Horrors (Salisbury Playhouse) and Hairspray (UK Tour). Karis is represented by Tildsley France.
‘AMTA got me to where I need to be!’ – Ethan Davis
Ethan graduated from AMTA London last year, after appearing as Eddie in Sister Act at Stockwell Playhouse. As a result of our end of year Pro Panel, Ethan was signed by one of the top agencies in London, Global Artists. After that, Ethan was awarded the AMTA 2018 Award for Musical Theatre in the Singing Category. Ethan’s appearance as a Swing in Motown marks his professional debut, staring rehearsals only weeks after graduation!

We caught up with Ethan to see how life on tour has been treating him, and how AMTA helped get him there! Watch the video below to find out!
