The Jazzabelles, the musical I’m in, made its triumphant debut with a rehearsed reading last night at the South Bank Playhouse on Kimberley Drive, off Sunnyside Street in Belfast. There’s a second performance tonight at 8pm.
Above is my rendition of the three heroines, Ella (Claire McCartney), Prissy (Beccy Henderson) and Vera (Sam McMillan). Done with digitally-simulated manual colour separations – click the image if you’re interested in the process.

I’m in a show! The Jazzabelles is an original musical by local composer Nick Boyle, about three women in 1950s Belfast who form a jazz trio. I play their manager, Vince Flynn, a man with a secret – and two songs, as well as contributing to others.
The Jazzabelles themselves are Claire McCartney, Samantha McMillan and Beccy Henderson, and they’re amazing. Beccy in particular can hit notes so high they don’t have names, apparently effortlessly, their harmonies are awesome, and Nick has written them some fantastic songs.
We’re rehearsing towards two preview performances on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 July at the South Bank Playhouse off Sunnyside Street in south Belfast, which we hope will drum up a bit of interest among theatregoers and persuade venues to book us for a full production.
