Glyn Kerslake

The Phantom of the Opera of Her Majesty's Theatre for 1998 - ?

Glyn was born in Devon and left at sixteen to train at the Arts Educational Schools in London. After leaving college his first appearance was in Ned Sherrin's Metropolitan Mikado at The queen Elizabeth and Royal Festival Halls on London's South Bank. He then appeared in Evita for a season at Manchester Opera House (directed by Hal Prince) and continued on its first National Tour where he played the role of Che Guevara on numerous occasions.

His first West End appearance was in the company of Les Miserables at the Palace Theatre in 1988. He then went on to become a member of the original cast of Miss Saigon at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane (directed by Nicholas Hytner) subsequently becoming the alternate Chris.

He then appeared as The Wolf and Cinderella's Prince in Stephen Soundheim's Into the Woods at the Library Theatre, Manchester. He then appeared in Side By Side by Soundheim at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin before returning to London's West End to appear as the alternate Joe Gillis in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard at the Adelphi Theatre (directed by Trever Nunn) playing opposite Betty Buckley and Elaine Paige.

Next came the European Prmiere of The World Goes 'Round by Kander and Ebb at the West Yorkshire Playhouse (directed by Jude Kelly).

Glyn has spent the last year in the rather unique position of appearing in two West End musicals at the same time. He returned to Les Miserables playing the role of Enjolras and understudying Jean Valjean as well as performing in Martin Guerre as the alternate Arnaud du Thil at the Prince Edward Theatre (directed by Declan Donnellan).
