John is delighted to be returning to the stage with Threepenny Theatricals this year. After two very difficult years with very little opportunity to perform, Enchanted April has been a real joy. This is John’s second outing with Threepenny after his debut in the company as Edward Angkatell in Agatha Christie’s The Hollow.
Along with Threepenny Theatricals, John is an active member in Southern Light Opera and has had the opportunity to play several brilliant roles. His first performance with SLO was as Harold Bride in Titanic followed by Cornelius Hackl in Hello Dolly. John then had the pleasure of playing Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady and Eli Whitney in Anything goes. Along with SLO, John has also performed is several comedies during the Edinburgh fringe festival.
Along with comic roles, John has also had the chance to play the other side of the coin with characters like Bill Sykes in Oliver and John Morrison in Men should weep.
Enchanted April has been a a very different sort of play. Starting our rehearsal process on zoom was something that most people before would never have considered. However the company rallied and worked all the harder to ensure that this show is a real gem.
John would like to take this opportunity to thank all the cast and crew for their time and support during the show and hopes that you enjoy the show as much as he has enjoyed preparing for it.
