AT just 18 Lucy Martin from Knowle is set to make her debut in the West End.
Born and bred in Solihull, Lucy, who attended Arden School will star in Dirty Dancing at the Aldwych Theatre.
After leaving Arden she was awarded a Musical Theatre scholarship to one of the UK’s leading Performance Arts schools. This year she is graduating with distinction and heads straight out onto the boards in London.
Dad, John, was understandably proud of his daughter: “It’s fantastic - we always had great expectations of her but we never expected her to achieve anything this early.”
