About our Director.
Sam has been producing and directing theatre since 2007 when he created ‘The Go Bananas Show’ for Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, which played to over 47.000 people and was re-commissioned the following year.
Sam went on to set up a Razzamataz theatre school franchise in Hampstead which he grew and developed for 3 years. Whilst running the theatre school, Sam produced two children’s shows one being an elongated revival of ‘The Go Bananas Show’ and the other, an original production of ‘The Tinderbox’ with Co-Producers Jason Belne and Mandy Holliday. Sam has also Co-Produced with Brad Fitt Inc to create the U.K Tour of ‘My Dogs Got No Nose’ by Ron Aldridge. During that summer Sam assisted on a production of ‘Saucy Jacks and the space vixens’ for the Camden fringe festival and then produced and directed his own production of ‘Santa’s New Sleigh’ at Lichfield Garrick Theatre.
Sam’s work with Sell A Door Worldwide saw him set up the investor meet-up group, coordinate press nights, run seven social media accounts and lead on the Greenwich Young Writers Program. During this time, Sam worked on UK tours of ‘Avenue Q’, ‘Little shop of Horrors’, ‘American Idiot’, ‘The Broons’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘James and the Giant Peach’ and ‘Footloose’.
Last year Sam teamed up with Chickenshed theatre company in North London to produce the UK tour of David Walliams ‘Mr Stick’. During the autumn he produced the UK tour of ‘Beyond Therapy’ by Christopher Durang and then two Christmas shows, ‘Santa’s New Sleigh’ by Brad Fitt and ‘Santa’s Elves and the Shoemaker’ by Ian Billings and Richard Lamming.
Sam is currently working towards a Christmas season of ‘Santa’s New Sleigh’ at the Capitol Theatre Horsham and is developing a new musical of the best-selling children’s book ‘Pirates Love Underpants’ by Clare Freedman and Ben Cort.
