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.
