Bruce O'Neil - Buy tickets
Saturday 18 July, 10.30am
Holy Trinity Parish Centre

As you will know, music plays a very important part in all RSC productions so we are delighted that the Head of Music, Bruce O'Neil, has agreed to come and tell us about the work he does. Bruce has been the Originating Musical Director on numerous productions from the Shakespeare repertoire as well as Merry Wives The Musical and Matilda The Musical, often appearing on stage playing an assortment of instruments as well as playing and conducting offstage. Those who were lucky enough to be at this year's Birthday Bash will have seen him in action conducting the musicians. This promises to be a fascinating event.

Henry Goodman - Buy tickets

When Henry Goodman was playing Richard III back in 2003, he was a very interesting guest at one of our events. We are especially glad that he has accepted our invitation to make a return visit whilst he is appearing in the title role in Volpone at the Swan Theatre this summer.

Henry has had an extensive career on stage and screen and has given award-winning performances in musicals so he will have plenty to talk to us about.
