St Ives boy Jay in Mama Mia... in Korea
St Ives musical star Jay Bryce is currently packing in the punters in the hit show Mama Mia - in Korea.
Jay - also known as Jamie - is forging a career for himself in musicals and is currently playing one of the three dads in the show based on the music of 70s Swedish pop band Abba.
Jay’s mum reports he is playing to packed houses in the 1,400 seat (and further 3,000 standing) Blue Square Theatre in Seoul.
Jay is due to be in Korea until March, reports mum Joanna, also from St Ives, before the company move on to Germany and then back to the UK for a short season at Blackpool's Opera House.
Proud mum Joanna said: “Although few of the Korean audiences can speak, English Jay is rapidly picking up the local language !
“And although he played two shows on Christmas Day he did manage to get squeeze in a traditional Christmas Dinner.”
