Louise Dearman (Wicked, Evita, Guys and Dolls) and Mark Evans (The Book of Mormon, Ghost the Musical, Wicked) are two of the biggest stars in musical theatre, with a wealth of experience and legions of committed fans.

In their new ‘crowd-sourced’ book, Secrets of Stage Success, they share their hard-earned knowledge and personal experience, answering questions submitted to them by fans and members of the public via a specially commissioned website.

Hundreds of questions were sent in from all around the world, and the pick of them are featured here, including: 'Can anyone be an actor?’ ‘How can I improve my vocal range?’ ‘How do I progress from the ensemble to a leading role?’ Unlike many other training books, from the very beginning Secrets of Stage Success was designed to cover exactly what the readers wanted to know.
The book is fully illustrated throughout. A dedicated website,, will launch on publication.
Louise Dearman and Mark Evans say: ‘Performing on stage is a wonderful job to have – and we feel lucky every day we get to do it. This is a tough and competitive business, but passion, drive and a clued-up approach will help see you through. Over the years we’ve picked up lots of tips from other performers, and have developed our own strategies and solutions too. Now we want to pass on what we’ve learnt!’

Matt Applewhite, Managing Director of Nick Hern Books, says: ‘Secrets of Stage Success is Nick Hern Books’ first crowd-sourced book. It marks an exciting new step for us as the UK’s leading theatre publisher – we were eager to let Louise and Mark’s fans tell us the things they wanted to know, and we hope they enjoy the results.’
