Crowds flocked around Jack Goodacre in August 2016 as the young boy took to the streets of Norwich to sing his heart out.
The 11-year-old, who hails from Eccles near Attleborough, performed some of his favourite songs alongside his dad Tim Goodacre.
At the time he hoped to take after his dad, who works as a singer/songwriter and music producer.
Now the young talent has managed to secure a starring role as Zack Mooneyham in Andrew Lloyd Webber's West End adaptation of School of Rock.
Jack said: 'I couldn't believe they chose me as there were thousands of great musicians at the audition, but now I get to play guitar, sing and act every night to sold out audiences - it's like a dream!'
As well as performing, Jack is also recording his debut EP and working with Gibson Guitars.
