Charlotte Bradford Cabaret THE LAST 7 YEARS Set For The Pheasantry, Jan 9

Actress/singer Charlotte Bradford will present her latest solo cabaret - The Last 7 Years - at The Pheasantry in Chelsea on Friday January 9, following her acclaimed one-woman-show, Songs My Dad Said I Should Sing, performed as part of the An Evening With The Sondheim Society's series of intimate cabarets at the Leicester Square Theatre Lounge in October 2013.

"The Last 7 Years" refers to the time since Charlotte graduated from drama school, which she describes as "an interesting seven years - from bombing around Loughton in my Corsa, forbidden to do 'musicals' at college, to finally being cast in next year's International Tour of Mamma Mia". Along the way she has played roles in the long-running News Revue at the Canal Cafe Theatre, Hansel And Gretel at the Brentwood Theatre, The Secret Garden UK Tour, brand new musical Shot At Dawn at Upstairs At The Gatehouse, as well as performing in various concerts including Giggin4Good charity concerts at the Actors' Church and Union Theatre. She has also performed sell-out solo concerts at the Battersea Barge and Canal Café Theatre, directed by her friend and mentor, Olivier Award winner Clive Rowe.

The songs in the set list for this latest concert will be drawn from a variety of genres, all accompanied by personal commentary from Charlotte with her cheeky sense of humour - a " journey of seven years in song, some of the shows I have been in and some mad-cap ideas I have had to earn money - stories of my life with songs to fit!"

Reflecting her commitment to supporting new musical theatre writing, the evening will include a performance of a song from composer Christopher J. Orton's new musical My Land's Shore, a piece which Charlotte holds very close to her heart since being a member of the workshop cast of the show in January 2013.

The evening will be musically directed by Simon Pickering (who was associate conductor/ MD for We Will Rock You for many years and now has his own production in Brighton - West End On Sea - specialising in cabarets with West End stars and supporting artists). He will be joined by Ian Killoran on clarinet, saxophone and flute.

The Last 7 Years will be a celebration in song of Charlotte's life since leaving the Method School - "from the sublime to the downright silly."
