Graeme Smith

Graeme started to dance at the Muriel Harrison School of Dance at the age of six, where he progressed through his exams to teacher level.

During his time there he performed in numerous dance shows and pantomimes, at various venues including the Sunderland Empire. He was also given the opportunity to dance with the Birmingham Royal Ballet as the Indian Prince in their production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. His first introduction to amateur theatre was with Sunderland Amateur Operatic Society, in their production of “Oliver!”, with whom he went on to do several shows with including “Anything Goes”, “Oklahaoma!” and “Evita”, before going to university.

It was this group he returned to after university, taking roles such as Nathan Detroit in “Guys & Dolls” and more recently Malcolm in “The Full Monty”. He is also an active member of the committee at Seaham Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society, with whom he has played parts such as Bill Snibson in “Me & My Girl” and, a personal favourite Cosmo Brown in “Singin’ In The Rain”.

This is Graeme’s first production both with DMTC and at GALA. He is really looking forward to taking part and would like to thank everyone for their warm welcome and support.

When he’s not on stage Graeme is a Conceptual Designer for Second Nature and Metris Kitchens.
