Ben has performed in a number of other professional shows in London and Dublin including Jack and the Beanstalk at Cork Opera House, Cinderella at The Gaiety in Dublin and the Irish tour of 'Oh What a Lovely War'.
Having moved back from London last year, saying he prefers to live in Ireland, Ben is keen to keen to make an impression on the industry at home. He believes he is right for the part of Nick and is excited about the possibility of playing the lead role in an Irish touring production.
One of Ben's favourite musicals is Les Mis, it was the first musical he ever saw in the West End when he was 14. His mum had brought him along as he was already hooked on the songs, after seeing it, he was hooked on musical theatre.
