Catherine Francoise Actress and Singer Interviewed by Riveting Riffs Magazine [cached]

Singer and Actress Catherine Francoise
There has been quite a bit of drama in Catherine Francoise's life and a lot of singing too. There has even been some dancing. Ms. Francoise is the founder and owner of the Vocal Performance Academy, located just outside of London, England, a performing arts teaching facility for youth. Catherine Francoise, her faculty and students regularly stage musicals and other productions that draw crowds large enough that they would be the envy of many North American theater companies. At the end of March and the beginning of April her school is reprising the musical Annie and in July the are embarking on their biggest theatrical production to date, as they stage The Sound of Music in six hundred seat Beck Theatre in Hayes, located in the London borough of Hillingdon. For such an accomplished performer, it may surprise some to learn that becoming a world renowned singer and actress was not something that many would have thought would be in store for Catherine Francoise, when she was a child. Before founding the Vocal Performance Academy, Catherine Francoise served as a teacher at other notable performing arts schools, including, the Mountview Theatre Academy and the Guildford School of Acting located in Surrey, England and an affiliate of the University of Surrey. There are a number of students that I taught who are currently appearing in the West End or who are currently on tours in shows like Sister Act," says Ms. Francoise. However, whether her students or former students are performing in large or smaller scale productions, Catherine Francoise says, "I think it is important for the students to understand that whether a venue is big, or small or grand or poor, the quality of your performance should remain the same.
