Bethany Boote

Bethany’s love for the performing arts began at the age of 4. She started her training at The
Jan Williams Theatre School where she trained in all aspects of dance, alongside her dance training, Bethany attended the Performers Theatre School where she was trained in singing and acting. Once leaving school Bethany moved to Leeds to further her training at SLP College where she was granted a DADA Award and gained a level 6 National Diploma in Professional Musical Theatre.

During her training Bethany has performed across the UK in many shows such as Andrew Lloyd Webbers Joseph And His Technicolour Dreamcoat, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, Princess Jasmine in Aladdin as well as numerous pantomimes, shows and dance events across the North West and Yorkshire.

In between performing Bethany has been lucky to teach some amazing young talent at numerous schools across the North West and Yorkshire and hopes to continue this as well as her performing career. She is looking forward to pass on her vast amounts of knowledge to the students of The Christopher Maloney Musical Theatre Academy.
