Buxton International Festival  –  2017

What brilliant fun performing in Britten’s Albert Herring at the historic Buxton Opera House. My partners in crime included Heather Shipp, Lucy Schaufer, Jeff Lloyd-Roberts, Yvonne Howard, Nick Merryweather, Bradley Smith, Kathryn Rudge, Morgan Pearse, and new bff John Molloy! A very funny production was directed by Francis Matthews and our superconductor was Justin Doyle, ably abetted by Annette Saunders.
