Nick Jonas - Nick Jonas Wants Theatre Work

Nick Jonas is keen to work more in the theatre.

The 18-year-old singer starred in a production of 'Les Miserables' in London last year and is set to appear on stage in Los Angeles later in 2011 in a production of 'Hairspray' and he is hopeful his career will always give him opportunities to showcase his acting talents in front of a live audience.

Nick - who made his Broadway debut when he was just seven years old - said: "Musical theatre has a fond spot in my heart. Hopefully, I'll be able to do more of it."

As well as his work with the Jonas Brothers, Nick released a solo album last year but is now keen to turn his talents to writing for other people.

He told the USA Today newspaper: "Back in December, I started writing and producing for other people. That's been my focus this year. I also scored a video game, which was really fun.

"It's been an opportunity to be just as productive as I am with my brothers. I hope that I can have a voice with my brothers, on my own and through other people."

Nick is also working on an online talent contest for singers aged between eight and 14 and is hopeful the scheme will help a young person on the way to the success he has enjoyed.

He said: "If there's a kid out there who is like me at that age, I'd love to guide them to a happy life and career in music."
