Graeme joined DMTC in 2001 to play the part of Dominique in our last production at The Assembly Rooms, “The Baker’s Wife”, which marked his stage debut.
Since then he has returned for several other productions with DMTC and played characters such as Freddy Eynsford-Hill in “My Fair Lady”, Third Office pitman in “Titanic“, Robert in “Company“, Gaston in “Gigi“, The Baron in “Grand Hotel” and Fatty Arbuckle in our 100th year anniversary production of “Mack and Mabel“.
Graeme also played the comical part of Cornelius Hackl in one of our recent shows Hello, Dolly! which gave him the opportunity to star along side his wife Katy.
He has also taken memorable parts with other groups, including Magaldi in the Northern premiere of “Evita” for Sunderland AOS and the part of Bobby Child in “Crazy for You” for Spennymoor AOS.
Graeme also worked as a semi-professional entertainer for about fifteen years working extensively throughout the northeast and has had prominent tours of Scotland, Wales, Yorkshire and Lancashire.
It is an honour to take on the huge role of Joe Gillis in this fabulous production. The range of emotions that I need to portray are quite a challenge together with a lot of difficult singing, however it’s made so much easier by working with such a talented production team and cast – especially my wife Katy (of course).
