Graham McDermott, originally from Youghal but now living in the UK, is delighted to be returning to his home county this Christmas season and joining the cast of Aladdin.
Graham is currently working for Parkdean Resorts, the UK’S largest family holiday resort, as part of the entertainment team and one of the creative managers.
Graham fell in love with performing arts from a very young age, training with local performing arts groups and stage schools. In 2004 he became a student at CADA Performing Arts and he started his professional training and exams with LAMDA.
Graham has a strong passion for dance and has trained in all styles including Irish dance, which has seen him gain Munster to All-Ireland titles and travel the world with various Irish dance shows.
Theatre credits include Oliver!, The King and I, My Fair Lady, Showboat, Oklahoma and South Pacific (Youghal Musical Society); Fiddler on the Roof (Fermoy Musical Society); Cork on Show (Cork Opera House); Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Mother Goose, Aladdin, Red Riding Hood and Beauty and the Beast (The Everyman, Cork).
Graham also appeared on An Jig Gig and Glad Vegas (TG4), Nationwide (RTÉ) and two TV adverts for Parkdean Resorts and Good Morning AM UK.
This year Graham was lucky to work with Channel 5’s popular kids TV show Milkshake! Mornings at Parkdean Resorts as a main presenter.
He’d like to thank all the staff, creative team and cast for making this the most magical and safe Christmas, as well as his family for their continued support. So, let’s hop on the magic carpet and travel into a whole new world of adventure, fun and laughter.
