Pirates of Penzance
So there I am on officers course – singing at a Cabaret venue in PTA to supplement my Air Force income (conscription years) when low and behold I get invited to come and audition for the juvenile lead Fredrick. I went and got the part! Having never been on a professional stage before.
Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat
I played the role of Joseph twice @ Artscape theatre in Cape Town.
It was touted as the new Joseph for a new generation and therefore my Brothers were punkrockers! I of course was an innocent angel! (type cast!)
Jesus Christ Super Star
Playing the role of Jesus was one of the most challenging experiences in my young career (at that stage).
Phantom of the Opera
What a journey it was to get to know this sad, desperate and lonely man. From auditions in SA – to auditions in London and then finally to get the stamp of approval to play the Phantom from Sir Andrew himself was an experience that dreams are made of!
Life at Centre Stage
After palying The Phantom – Pieter Toerien and I decided that I should venture into a show where I sing the biggest numbers in musical theatre.
I have always wanted to play the bad guy in a Panto and when I got offered the role of Aggenee Abenazar in Aladdin, grabbed it with two grimy hands.
Sound of Music
So after playing Jesus and Joseph and The Phantom I realised that I would never want to play any roles that are not iconic.
This is why I grabbed the opportunity to play Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music.
