Musical Director for Jack And The Beanstalk, Extravaganza Productions, Middlesbrough Theatre, 2014-2015
It was a joy to return to Extravaganza Productions as musical director again this year, working with some friendly familiar, and new faces. With a very talented, fun cast & crew, making the job very enjoyable all around, especially with the very talented comic, Scott Gallagher (Simple Simon) who always does a grand job of including the band into the show, with lots of interaction, making everybody feel a part of what’s going on. This really encourages the band to go for it and have some fun, rather than being locked away deep within the orchestra pit, never to be seen. The whole company had a blast and this really showed in the performances. As an added bonus, I managed to do a little gig with John Altman (“Nasty Nick”) in town after a show one night, this was a lot of fun and caused a little bit of a riot!
The show featured John Altman (known from EastEnders) as Fleshcreep.
