Brentwood Theatre


John is Brentwood Theatre’s Resident Musical Director

For the past 8 years he has successfully helped the theatre create Christmas shows that offer an alternative to the pantomimes performed at other theatres throughout Essex. These shows have proved to be exceptionally popular and have received wide spread acclaim, with excellent reviews in the Stage and other publications.


The 2009 production was THE TWITS for which John composed a new musical score. He has also composed new scores for JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH AND FANTASTIC MR FOX.  

John has created full backing tracks for David Wood shows such as THE MEG AND MOG SHOW, and THE GINGERBREAD MAN. David was suitably impressed as traditionally these shows had only been performed with a simple piano accompaniment.


The music for these shows created at Brent Wood Theatre sets music to all of the rhymes used in David Woods’s stage adaptation of the books and backing tracks are available to hire.

In 2006 Brentwood Theatre took an exciting step forward with the World Premiere of THE GREAT SLEIGH ROBBERY. This family musical was written by John with Simon James Green and tells the story of how some very naughty elves want to ruin Christmas by stealing Santa’s sleigh!

Interest in this fun show is growing  and John and Simon are now developing the show for

future production opportunities. If you are interested in staging this show, please contact John through this website.
