I have a strong interest in musical theatre and pantomime, their ability to entertain audiences of all ages and prompt a cataclysm of emotions fascinates me. I’m also interested in new work and plays that strike the magical balance between entertainment and message, changing hearts, minds and holding up a mirror to ourselves.
Here’s some projects I’ve been working on in the last few months.
