Musical Director for Sleeping Beauty, Extravaganza Productions, Middlesbrough Theatre, 2013-2014
This was a great production to be a part of; the attention to detail in all departments was fantastic. As my first full Panto run as MD, working with a good fun, talented cast & crew made the job very enjoyable, and what more could I ask for getting to contribute to a brilliant show making music and getting to be silly in front of a piano over Christmas?!
The show featured ‘Allo ‘Allo stars Kim Hartman as Carabosse & Vicki Michelle as Lilac Fairy.
Lucy Lavelle as Princess Aurora,
Simon Schofield as Prince Florizel,
David Rumelle as Queen Hermione,
Scott Gallagher as Jangles the Jester,
Terry Ashe as King Ferdinand.
“James, it has been a delight working with you. Your talent, dedication and professionalism is outstanding, and on top of that you are a great company member. I shall miss listening to your joyous music every day and I certainly will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is looking for a fantastic, fun musician, and a brilliant, caring Musical Director.” – Kim Hartman
