Once again, Grease became the word. 6 years ago, I MD’d this show for the first time, and I have never forgotten it since. It will always be my favourite show of all time, and I got the opportunity this year to MD it once more (and possibly another 2 times in the near future). … Continue reading Grease IS the Word
I've been Into the Woods and now Out Of The Woods, but certainly not home before dark. This week has been a new type of fun for me. I have been playing the Piano (+ many other little parts on the Keys) for Twyford Church of England High School's production of 'Into The Woods' by … Continue reading And home before….

On the opening night, I really wasn't sold, but by the last show, I am more than sold. If I get the … Continue reading EVERYBODY OUT & STAND UP!
I would normally at this point say, 'so here ends a long December' (or something to that effect), but not this year. I have had musically an amazing Christmas this year.
