Andrew Lloyd Webber takes his musical genius from the stage to the small screen in the New Year when he makes a cameo appearance in Channel 4’s hit teen drama, Hollyoaks.
Hollyoaks‘s very own Summer Shaw is in pursuit of stardom and is determined to fulfil her dream of West End fame – at any price. Convinced that she is good enough to succeed if only she had the opportunity, she decides that she has just one option – to stalk legendary theatre producer Andrew Lloyd Webber!
With determination and tenacity Summer finally gets her wish and the chance to audition for her idol, but with the spotlight firmly fixed on her not everything goes to plan. Will she finally shine and get the chance to live her dream, or is she destined to be just another wannabe?
Andrew Lloyd Webber is delighted to be involved with the show, saying “I have blurred fiction with fact all my life but never before on national TV. Bless Hollyoaks for asking me.”
At the centre of the storyline, Summer Strallen is thrilled to be involved: “It’s been a fantastic storyline and to have the opportunity to meet Andrew Lloyd Webber was amazing – he’s a legend! I’ve had a very theatrical upbringing so this was a dream come true for me. Hollyoaks viewers will have to tune in to find out if Summer does enough to impress Andrew Lloyd Webber or if she’ll live happily ever after in the Village with OB!”
Summer’s audition episode featuring Andrew Lloyd Webber will be screened on February 1st 2008.
