A former Robert Clack pupil has landed a role in West End musical Kinky Boots.

Natalie McQueen, 29, who attended the school in Gosfield Road, Dagenham from 2000 to 2005, today walks the boards as Lauren for the first time at the Adelphi Theatre.

The comedy tells the tale of a struggling shoe factory whose owner teams up with a drag queen to produce erotic footwear, much to workers’ dismay.

Natalie, a native of Essex, made her theatre debut at a young age. She was just eight years old when she was cast to play Young Éponine in Les Misérables.

Her theatre credits include roles such as the Mad Hatter in Wonderland and Dinah in Starlight Express at the Other Palace Theatre.

She is also involved in the music industry and is the lead vocalist and songwriter for the rock band Farewell City.

Natalie also served as a UK jury industry judge for the Eurovision song contest in 2013.
