I'm currently appearing as a Male Super in the Glyndebourne production of Wagner's 'Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg' which runs until the end of June. It's a revival of the 2011 production directed by Sir David McVicar starring Gerald Finley in the lead role of Hans Sachs. The orchestra is the LPO conducted by Michael Güttler. Here is a snap of me and my other Male Super pals in our dressing room (I'm in the brown hat).

I'm currently rehearsing for the Ditchling Players next production The Nightingales a comedy by Peter Quilter in which I'm cast as Charlie. Set in the home of a cabaret star, Jack, the rhythm of his comfortable life is disturbed by the unexpected arrival of his parents, who were themselves a Music Hall act, ‘Charlie and Beat’. Why they have suddenly descended on Jack is unclear; then his mother disappears.

Jack’s stage partner, Maggie, is having relationship problems, which Jack could solve, and the ‘will they, won’t they’ path of Jack and Maggie weaves its way throughout the play.

I've also designed the poster.
