Phoenix student Delilah Bennett-Cardy lands West End role
Primary Drama student Delilah Bennett-Cardy has been cast in the hit West End musical, School of Rock. Delilah, aged 11, has been attending drama classes at Phoenix for two years and has also appeared as a chorus member in the Phoenix Theatre Arts produced Rhodes pantomimes, Cinderella in 2016 and Snow White in 2017. In 2018 Delilah took the principal role of Fizzy in our production of Bugsy Malone at the Rhodes, Bishop’s Stortford.
Delilah plays Summer, the overachieving, clarinet playing music student turned Manager of the School of Rock band, formed by phoney music teacher Dewey Finn, who transforms the 3 R’s into Rock & Roll and Rebellion! Delilah is a great character actress, dancer and singer and we are sure she will shine in the role of Summer. A great experience for a very talented and lovely young lady. Well done Delilah, we can’t wait to see the show!
