What's in my dressing room? - Alec Porter

The actor currently appears in Crime & Punishment at the open air venue The Scoop

Alec Porter trained at the Royal Central School for Speech and Drama, and has previously appeared in The Sound of Music UK tour as Fredrich Von Trapp, and Arianna in Creta at Royal College of Music. He is currently playing in Crime & Punishment: A Rock Musical which features music by Toyah Wilcox and her song-writing partner Simon Darlow.

He took us backstage at the open air venue to show us what he keeps in his dressing room.

The Hair Glue

AC: "It takes a lot to keep the mop that is my hair under control - hair glue just about does the job! "

The Puzzles

AC: "I have a slight obsession with Sudoku – it's a great way to keep your mind focused and alive when you have a bit of time to kill."

The Coat

AC: "Raskolnikov's coat! One of the heaviest things I've ever had to wear. Raz often retreats into its dark and dusty depths when things aren't going his way - which is most of the time!"

The Partner In Crime (And Punishment)

AC: " Zac plays Dimitri. He's a great friend on and off stage and a true partner in Crime and Punishment - excuse the pun!"

The Tunes

AC: "Music music music! It's a must before any performance. A mix of heavy and psychedelic rock helps me prepare for the show."

Crime & Punishment runs alongside The Wawel Dragon at The Scoop until 25 September 2016.
