Originally from Glasgow, Simon started acting in school productions of Gilbert and Sullivan operas. His first role was the title role in 'The Mikado'. He graduated from the University of Glasgow with a degree in Drama and History. Since then he has performed most of the G&S baritone roles. Shortly after moving to Edinburgh he took the title role in the Scottish premiere of Sondheim’s 'Sweeney Todd' which played in the Royal Lyceum. He has also played roles in other Sondheim productions such as 'Into the Woods' and 'Assassins'.
In addition to a wide range of music theatre productions, Simon has also appeared in several non musical productions including 'The Sea' by Peter Bond and Shakespeare’s plays 'The Tempest' and 'A Midsummer Night’s Dream'. Simon has directed youth theatre productions as part of the National Theatre Connections program and had the pleasure of watching his company perform on stage in the Royal Lyceum.
Simon is delighted to take part in this first production from Threepenny Theatricals.
