Musical theatre compositions [first post]

Hello all!  Been a member on this forum for a few months and have watched from afar, but thought I would get involved and submit some of my own music for critique...

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
Originally trained as a ballet dancer at the Royal Ballet School in London, before succumbing to a back injury and gravitating towards music in my late teens. Went on to study for a BMus (hons) in music performance (my main instrument being the bass guitar), but with a large practical project focused on composing for musical theatre.

Currently interested in musical theatre, with several ideas for shows and musical excerpts written! Aside from composing at home I play bass for a blues rock band in the UK (and sometimes Europe/occasionally beyond...).
