A day in the Life.... Dan S Gray (ORC, 14-16)

It’s crazy that I get to call this work...

Since leaving Christ College in 2016, it seems I’ve lived 100 lives. I went on to study Drama at university and then took on a Masters degree in Musical Theatre at the Guilford School of Acting - which, surprise surprise, was cut short by the pandemic. Since then, I’ve worked as a Tesco personal shopper, opened my own theatre summer school and, for the last 3 years, worked as a Drama teacher in the south of England.

Throughout my entire teaching career, I missed nothing more than performing. Working alongside my students and helping them get into  drama school and achieve their own dreams, I often found myself forgetting what my dreams were. My dreams and career aspirations have always been in performance and so, I bit the bullet and left my teaching role to audition for professional performing roles. I feel so lucky and privileged to have been given the opportunity to now be working as a Lead Vocalist with Celebrity Cruises - performing, singing my heart out and travelling the world. I’m currently in the Caribbean, basking in the sun and singing some fabulous songs to thousands of people per week. I could not have asked for a better job!

I’ve attached a TikTok outlining a day in the life of my job.

It’s crazy that I get to call this work - you’ll see what I mean! Thanks for reading.

Please feel free to get in contact with Huw Richards, who can give you my details, if you have any questions at all about this industry and how to best prepare yourself for it.
