I trained as a Registered Music teacher when my children were young and had a career as a Music Teacher spanning 20 years. There has been such a lot of wonderful times with theatre and High school productions, Community Orchestras and Art. Probably too many to mention. I think my first introduction to theatre was being onstage in the End of Year Ballet Recital for Cinderella at about age 9. I started Directing shows in my early 30’s, after having experienced every other aspect of the theatre, and have a good ability to see the final outcome in my head. Moved to the Bay 13 years ago, and I have directed shows mostly since being here, with the odd time onstage for a bit of light fun. This is my 5rd year with Theatre Hawkes Bay, and I am thoroughly enjoying myself. I love the contact with artistic and likeminded folks. Such a talented bunch.
