    Referees

    Matt is a conscientious, up-and-coming MD. One to look out for...

    Gareth Weedon Musical Director, Spamalot, West End

    Matt stepped into the role after rehearsals had already commenced, as if he had been here from the start. I am delighted he will be with us for next year – his talent is a major asset to us.

    Sy Boyce Director, Treading The Boards Theatre Company, Wirral

    Matt did a fantastic job across the entire project. Excellent engagement with the cast and he really motivated them and pushed them to achieve a fantastic product at the end of the course. Would definitely work with Matt again on the next project!
