Hello My name is Laura Beth Mortemore and I am 23 years old. My main interests are dancing, singing and acting. I have been dancing since I was three years old and have been a member of various amateur dramatic and musical theatre groups over the years. I was then lucky enough to study musical theatre at the Musical Theatre Academy in London from 2009-2011. Since then I have worked in various professional shows. Recently just got back after nine months of being a Principal Singer onboard Costa Cruises. Was an amazing experience and got to see some beautiful places. I consider myself to be a hard-working, reliable and enthusiastic person. Since working from a bar to a front of house at The Dominion I have learnt how to work as part of a team, but have also had to be relied on to use my own initiative in a busy and often hectic work environment. My interpersonal skills have been enhanced during this time because of the many new people and members of the public that I have come into contact with.
