About Helena Isabelle Biggs
Whilst still training in Musical Theatre at Guildford School of Acting, Helena toured with Danny La Rue as a dancer/singer with Ian Liston’s company. After graduating she played the Rose Seller and in the Ensemble in Cameron Mackintosh production of Oliver. She next took the seas as a lead singer, working with other talented singers, dancers and choreographers from Jean Ann Ryan Productions aboard Norwegian and P&O ocean liners.
For seven years you could find Helena singing lead gospel and choir at the Thursford Christmas Spectacular with Producer John Cushing. With a 40 piece classical orchestra, twenty dancers and a full choir, the Spectacular included musical theatre numbers, a mix of strong choral medleys and music from every genre.
Once back onshore Helena acted as Choreographer and Assistant Director to a youth group called MJUK productions in Cirencester set up and run by International Opera Singer and Director Maria Jagusz.
While working backstage at Phantom of the Opera, she began writing, casting and producing “See You Soon,” a 21 minute short film with Executive Producer Ian Carling and Director Steve Hilliker.
As an artist her work is variety of music making, film and photography, dance, word, all art from the heart.
