Leigh Baker rehearsing for costume change record

LOCAL performer Leigh Baker is currently rehearsing for a blink or you will miss it world record.

When Eastbourne Stagers present the award-winning musical Our House Leigh will be looking to firstly equal and then break the record for quickest costume change in a musical.

Leigh will be hoping to beat the record of four seconds currently held by Michael Jibson who played the same role of Joe Casey when the lively musical packed full of Madness songs was in the West End in 2003.

As well as all of the rehearsals, there will be plenty of time for Leigh to practise the costume change as he will have a staggering 25 changes in each performance, only four short of another record.

Our House follows the story of Joe who on his 16th birthday has a difficult choice to make.

With classic hits such as Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love and of course Our House to sing along to, there are six chances to see if the record can be beaten when the production kicks off on Tuesday September 13 at the Devonshire Park Theatre.
