A 13-year-old boy from Borehamwood will finish his summer holidays with two West End productions under his belt.

Miller Henderson, the former Monksmead student, finishes a run in The Secret Garden at the Ambassadors Theatre tomorrow night (August 6), before moving onwards and upwards to appear in Godspell at the Actor’s Church in Covent Garden on August 30 and 31.

Miller will be appearing in the show, in aid of Sands Charity UK, alongside Kelly Ellis, star of WICKED, Ramin Karimloo, of Phantom of the Opera and Preeia Kallidas, of Bend it Like Beckham.

Lisa Henderson, his mother, says: “There is so much doom and gloom in this world, its nice when kids do well. He’s so dedicated, he works really hard at acting and dancing, as well as being top of his class academically.

“He was an IVF baby and my husband and I tried for eight years to have him. It’s the icing on the cake that he’s so talented. He’s a polite, modest boy. I’ve done my best to keep him grounded, the last thing I want him to be is spoilt like some other child actors.”

The amazing opportunity for this young and aspiring performer comes after appearing as Rooster in Annie at The Arts Centre, West End last summer and the TV series You, Me and Them on Gold which was a Hatrick Production.

Lisa adds: “There’s lots of negative publicity about young people in Borehamwood. I want people to know we have our success stories too and hopefully Miller will inspire other young people in Borehamwood to follow their dreams.”
