I have had a life-long interest in the theatre and performing, especially the musical theatre, both as an amateur and semi-professional performer and as a producer and director.
After retirement from a professional career in financial management that took me to over thirty countries, I have been able to devote much of my leisure time to my musical and entertainment interests. This has encompassed producing music festivals, directing and participating in various forms of musical and dramatic entertainment and studying the lives and work of the prominent musical theatre contributors to the 20th century musical theatre, and in particular those contributors to what is known as The Great American Songbook.
I am also a keen walker and have successfully completed the four-day Nijmegen Marches in Holland sixteen times.
About my Talks...
My talks are made with Powerpoint presentations using my laptop, projector, screen and ancillary equipment. This is important because my talks are illustrated with pictures, music and video clips. Ideally these talks require an hour to one hour and a quarter, but they can be shortened to 45 minutes as necessary. I am aiming to develop a range of talks based around the common theme of The Great American Songbook and the great musicals. Currently I can present the talks listed below, so please scroll down…………..
£50 within 15 miles of Dereham, Mid-Norfolk, about 14 miles west of Norwich. I am happy to travel into adjoining counties though travel costs are required for distances over 15 miles.
Talks on Zoom £40.00.
My talks can also be bought in recorded form. Contact me for details.
