Britain's Got Talent winner joins the cast of Into The Hoods

George Sampson will make his theatrical debut next month when he joins the cast of Into The Hoods in London’s West End.

The Britains Got Talent winner will star in the new show as one of the children who get lost in a rough neighbourhood while playing truant from school.

The cast perform to hip-hop tracks by artists including Gorillaz, Kanye West and The Chemical Brothers.

This year is getting better and better, says George, 15. Into The Hoods is funky and young and I love the music in it – I cant wait to get dancing on that stage!

Fresh from the sell-out Britains Got Talent UK tour, George will perform at the Novello Theatre, Aldwych from Tuesday to Saturday for four weeks from 4 August, with the exception of the matinee performance on 6 August.

Tickets are priced from £15, call 0844 482 517 or click here.
