GOING FORWARD

Thank you.jpg

Just to update everybody; I am now no longer heading up Arts North Norfolk. I am extremely proud of all the achievements of the past three years, returning to my hometown, animating the Atrium arts centre from a blank canvas, working all hours, founding and establishing the charity and profiling our town as much as I could. There are too many highlights (as a Chief Executive, Artistic director, producer, teacher and performer) to mention them all but here’s a massive thank you to everybody who has been part of it. It has been great seeing the community come together and achieve great things.

Going forward, I want to stay local and will be delving back into freelance opportunities as a producer, teacher, writer and performer. I will also continue with my own set ups (New Stages theatre and acting classes along with singing groups locally) and Headless Entertainment (producing theatre and acts for festivals, theatres and gigs).

Hopefully you’ll want to be part of my ventures going forward; whether you’re taking part in a class or attending a show and thank you again for all your support so far.

ARTS NORTH NORFOLK

In September 2012 I returned to my hometown of North Walsham and began to animate the Atrium arts centre. It was brand new and founded Arts North Norfolk as the local arts development charity to being the local community together and produce some fantastic projects and shows. As Chief Executive and Artistic Director I am very proud of all the achievements made over my three years.

 

CHRISTMAS 2015

Following on from the success of last year’s pantomime Beauty and the Beast, we captured the spirit of the community once more with our magical production of Pinocchio and the Pirates!

As writer, director, producer and performer I like to keep it neat and smart with few principal cast members. I also merged the villains of the original story into a band of nasty pirates. A simple story is key to any pantomime – and any piece of theatre, so it was important to keep to a simplified plot (the original story is far too complicated) and keep traditional pantomime elements. You can check out my list of other pantomime scripts here.
