Reuniting two thirds of the excellent creative team responsible for our production of Beauty and the Beast last year; musical director Paul Woodhall and choreographer Gaynor Tromans (responsible for the legendary “Tankardography”) are joined by producer/director Jo Foley. Taking over the directorial baton from Ian Howarth who did an excellent job with our last two main shows “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Beauty and the Beast”, this is Jo’s debut as a director for BHMTC.

Bringing with her a wealth of knowledge and experience as an actor, writer, acting tutor, voice coach and director  from her professional career, Jo is looking forward to applying her talent for creating and producing dynamic and innovative drama to our production of Oliver!
