QUALITY - INCLUSIVE - THEATRE
I forge work of the highest artistic quality; pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved in the rehearsal room and on stage; like staging a full-length musical, involving 100 young people in just 9 days or creating successful, nationally-touring musicals. I adopt an open and collaborative approach and offer strong artistic vision coupled with excellent leadership.
I am excited by projects which foster diversity and inclusivity while striving to engage hard-to-reach audiences.

“Director, Mark Hooper and his team captured the exuberance, colour, fun and excitement of the original Dreamworks movie and enhanced it with this musical extravaganza for all ages. […]the ensemble cast, including the wonderful penguins, certainly put a smile on the faces of an appreciative audience and the standing ovation was well deserved.”
