Seán is 18 years old, (19 on 21st of May) from Dunshaughlin in County Meath and currently living in Maynooth where he is a first year student of Media, Irish and History at NUI. He has been involved in musical theatre for the past 4 years and has performed in a number of amateur musicals during that time. Seán has never performed professionally so to get the part of Nick would be a huge step for him and he hopes, a catalyst for a career in musical theatre.
Seán's first musical theatre audition was for an amateur production of West Side Story when he was 14. He sang 'Something Coming' and was successful. Seán chose to sing the same song for his Fame School audition. He says he hoped the song would bring him into professional world of musical theatre in the same way that it introduced him to the amateur world.
Seán has never been professionally trained in musical theatre and only really discovered he could sing by chance. He was on a family holiday as a teenager and at a sing song in a pub with his parents, someone asked him to get up and sing a tune, so he gave it a go. Everyone was very impressed and his parents organised singing lessons for him soon after.
