Corrine Priest


Corrine is originally from Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset. Before attending London School of Musical Theatre Corrine gained a 1st Class Degree in Musical Theatre from Bath Spa University.

Whilst training, Corrine’s credits included Viv Nicholson in Spend Spend Spend, Ophelia in Hamlet (Excerpt), Girl 5 / Whore in Les Miserables (Workshop), Ru / ensemble in Merrily We Roll Along (Workshop), The Kolokolo bird in Just So (Musical), From Page To Stage at The Landor.

Corrine won the Stephen Sondheim Society Student Performer of the Year Award at the Garrick Theatre in May 2014 and made her professional debut in GOD at London Theatre and since then has appeared as Amy in Girlfriends, Union Theatre and most recently seen as Lucy in USHERS: The Front of House Musical, at The Arts Theatre after a transfer from it’s successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, and is soon to be appearing in A Christmas Carol as The Ghost of Christmas Past at Blackpool Opera House this Christmas alongside Paul Nicholas as Scrooge.

“Occasionally, very occasionally, you see a newcomer perform to a standard that you could not imagine being improved upon even by a major star, such was the case with Priest.” Sondheim Magazine (Review of GOD, London Theatre Workshop)

“Corrine Priest gives every indication of being a talent bound for very high rank. This young lady is in contact with every nuance of every line she sings… she is an actress first and singer second… the Janie Dee of the next generation.” – Musical Theatre Review (Review of SSSPOTY, Garrick Theatre)

“Corrine Priest stands out a mile with vocals and personality… she then absolutely brings the house down and stops the show as Priest absolutely nails every comedic moment.” – The Stage (Review of SSSPOTY, Garrick Theatre)
