Back in the Outback for a while…

I’m absolutely delighted to be able to work in the theatre once more – and delighted to back out on the road with PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT – this time as Musical Director.

All things being well, we will be touring the UK until the end of October – at which point I’ll be starting rehearsals for Panto – details of which will follow shortly…

I set out with this blog to help remind myself and others that whilst the current situation is dire, there have been many moments of Christmas joy in the past, and will be again in the future – particularly now that vaccines appear to be on the way. It’s important to try and keep on top of our mental health, and this is certainly helping me do that – and hopefully others too. I’m thrilled by the number of comments coming in, and look forward to seeing others as they come in.
