SALAD DAYS

Riverside Studios, Hammersmith. 2010-2012

Tete a Tete Opera Company. Directed by Bill Bankes Jones.

Happy memories of two winter seasons with such a ‘summery’ show! Performed acoustically in traverse in the huge TV studio 2 ( incidentally, where I rehearsed with the original London Cast of SUNSET BOULEVARD !)

My Fair Lady – Kilworth

Thankyou for two of the happiest contracts of my career – playing Emile DeBecque in SOUTH PACIFIC & my favourite role ever, Henry Higgins in MY FAIR LADY !

Wishing Ceal Mackay and Adam Watkiss a very Happy Retirement ! You’ll be missed. KILWORTH HOUSE THEATRE is the most magical performance venue!

HAPPY 35th BIRTHDAY to LES MISERABLES !

Crazy to think that the London Production of LES MISERABLES is celebrating its 35th Birthday – despite the extraordinary upheavals and temporary closure.

I’m very proud to have played a part in this epic journey – My very first West End job. In 1987 I joined the second cast (actually many of the original Barbican cast were still there!). After 6 months as Swing, I was given the role of Grantaire, understudying Marius & Enjolras, then after a further 6 months, also played the Factory Foreman.

Hamlet! The Musical edit

August 2011 Edinburgh Fringe saw the phenomenDirectal HAMLET! THE MUSICAL win Best Musical on the Fringe, leading to a runs at Northampton Royal Theatre and Richmond Theatre. Featuring a cast of only 6 actors, the show parodies but tells the story of the Danish Prince faithfully! I played Claudius, The Ghost (portrayed as a ‘Vegas Lounge Singer’!) and various woodland creatures in Ophelias mad scene!!
