Detailing my most recent first:
For the past three seasons I have been involved in a local charitable pantomime group called St Nicholas Players where I was the dame. For the up and coming fourth season I am in Beauty and the Beast playing M. Bisteaux (Belle's father)
Along side this work I have slipped in the odd bit of extra work and other stage plays. Examples are as a "Wannabe Webber" a tribute film for Andrew Lloyd Webber's 70th birthday where I got to work with Jeremy Clarkson and Arlene Foster. I have also been a gangster type in a YouTube film about The Punisher.
Alongside the pantomime, I was also in a play which ran for two seasons for two consecutive years called "Shafted" about the miners' strike of the mid-80s, in this I was the main policeman "Sergeant Danny Craven" who was suitably corrupt, ruthless and calculating.
Prior to these projects I worked with a friend on a couple ofMurder Mystery plays, both of these I was a dodgy character, one of which I got to use my pianistic skills on stage, not only was it remembering lines and developing a character but also interacting with audience questions, improvising and thinking on one's feet and yet stay in character.
