I’m delighted to say that I recently joined the UK tour of HAIRSPRAY, as Deputy Musical Director. We’ll be at venues across the UK until June 2018, with a nice break over Christmas, so catch the show if you can.

Best wishes to all of the TOP HAT team at Kilworth House Theatre. Stephen (ably assisted by Jo) and Michael have moulded a fabulous cast into a wonderful show. It’s been a pleasure to play for rehearsals for the last 3 weeks. Have a smooth tech, and a great run. X
Check out this short promo video for KISS ME KATE at Kilworth House Theatre this summer. If you listen very carefully you can just catch some of my keyboard strings!
I’m delighted to say that I’ll be back in the tent at Kilworth House this summer – playing keyboards in the Orchestra for KISS ME KATE, under the baton of Michael England.

Wishing everyone at Theatre by the Lake a great last day on THE EMPEROR & THE NIGHTINGALE. A fabulous production that everyone should be proud of. (Insert sound of large gong here!!). X
HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone. Have a happy and successful 2017.
Another lovely review for THE EMPEROR & THE NIGHTINGALE, this time in Egremont2Day: “Composer and music director Richard Atkinson has to be praised along with the actors for the incredible music – all of which was live and performed on stage”.
Many thanks to Ken Powell for his kind words.
