The 2016/2017 MMA Adjudicator
John has been involved with the theatre for over 25 years now. He has played numerous roles all over the region for lots of different societies.
Some of his favourite roles include
Jesus in "Jesus Christ Superstar",
Jekyll & Hyde in "Jekyll & Hyde",
Sweeney in "Sweeney Todd",
Che in "Evita",
Bobby in "Company" and
Jerry in "The Full Monty" to name a few.
John has travelled the country with "Blue Juice Big Band" as one of the lead singers for a few years before marrying his
wonderful wife, Jane, and having two wonderful daughters.
John has been directing plays and musicals for over 10 years now.
His passion for performing and creating live theatre is still as strong now as it was when he first started;
he has been known to get rather carried away with his emotions on many occasions.
John was thrilled to be asked to adjudicate the MMA’s this season and has enjoyed the whole experience.
He’d like to thank Gill and the MMA Committee for asking him to adjudicate.
He is so sad not to be joining everyone this year on the night of the awards but as he is directing and performing
in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" at Oldham Coliseum,
something to which he had committed before the change of date and venue for the awards night.
He hopes everyone has a great evening and as the famous saying goes "The Show must go on!"
