“Let’s Put On A Show”

Tom’s presentation called “Let’s Put On A Show” is a behind the scenes look at how a musical actually gets on the stage!

He joined the then Willoughby Musical Society in 1969 and started directing musicals in 1978. Since then, Tom has directed over 40 productions for Willoughby and another 20 for other companies, including the Australian premier of Zorba, Meet Me in St Louis, Titanic, The Scarlet Pimpernel and recently directed the NSW premier of “Strictly Ballroom”.

Now past President of Willoughby Theatre Company (2004), Tom and his wife Joy, also an accomplished director and costume designer, spend most of their leisure time involved with the theatre.
