We are delighted to announce the production team for our Guild show and welcome two new faces to the Society.
Peter Taylor joins us as director, Edward Rugman as Musical Director and Lorna Cookson makes a welcome return to choreograph the big tap number in the show. Bruce McLaren will assist Edward as chorus master.
Peter is an experienced director from Lytham who has achieved great NODA success with his outstanding productions including Blood Brothers (Fylde Coast Players), Billy Elliot (Clifton Academy), The Railway Children (Morecambe Warblers) and Jekyll and Hyde (St Annes Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society). Peter is also the Taylor of Cuffe and Taylor Event Management whose events include Lytham Proms, this year featuring our own Alfie Boe.
Edward is from the Fylde and is a highly qualified musician with a wealth of experience of musical theatre. He studied at the RNCM in Manchester and is currently MD for Blackpool Operatic Players’ production of Titanic to be staged at The Grand Theatre this week.
Both Peter and Edward list Mack & Mabel as one of their favourite musicals and are both delighted to join the Society.
