Doombar, paracetamol and strepsils. Also perhaps sleeping with the director (my wife) has its advantages...

Having to pretend to be a ropey aging singer, oh wait a minute.....


What's the funniest thing that's happened in a rehearsal?

92740245 2

Chris Bateman's ballet - there are no words to describe it but it is a visual pleasure that once seen, never is forgotten!


Which musical theatre performer do you admire and why?

Lance Paul Vernon - he's the quadruple threat - Actor, singer, dancer and big hunk of lovin'! (Feeling the love guys - maybe a little too much?!?)

Who is the funniest person in the cast and why?

Chris Bateman (see above)


Apart from performing, what's another skill that you have?

Filling in questionnaires (and being incredibly cheeky obviously!)


What night of show week is your favourite?

Sunday - after the get out!


Why should people come and watch the show?


Because my wife (the director) will be intolerable to live with if we don't get the audiences so please come and watch it and save me!


Her vision is amazing and it deserves huge audiences as she (and the cast) have worked so incredibly hard - you don't want to miss this one so get your tickets now!
