I’m Matt: my pronouns are they/he and I am a musical theatre director & producer, queer artist & video designer.

Over the past seven years, I have created & produced an array of film & theatrical experiences through digital performances, community projects and youth productions. My practice combines cinematic, scenographic styles with embodied movement & music to create visual spectacles. I am passionate about reimagining classics and amplifying new musicals.

 

I graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in 2020 with a first class honours degree in Theatre Practice: Performance Arts. During my studies, I became the first student to work for MA Music Theatre as Assistant Director supporting the public productions of the 2019 & 2020 cohort. I have also regularly assisted Adam Lenson on various new musicals.

I produce a variety of theatrical experiences through MPTheatricals. As Creative Producer, I support and create innovative new musicals & LGBTQ+ driven work both onstage and online in a variety of media forms. Artist development is at the core of my producing practice. I am passionate about boosting ideas and exploring avenues with artists to get their stories out there in the world.

 

Alongside directing and producing, I am a video designer and editor. Highly skilled in the Adobe suite, I have designed engaging overlays for live performances, edited full length digital performances & bespoke projects & designed projected sets & visuals for various shows. I am making my West End debut this May video designing & associate directing Public Domain with Adam Lenson & ALPMusicals.

 

As a queer identifying practitioner, I have a passionate interest and commitment to developing LGBTQ work. I have directed and produced a majority queer portfolio of productions and projects & frequently support queer writers and artists.

 

In addition to their work in theatre, I am an emerging queer artist. Performing as Anatomy, I use drag to explore my genderqueer identity in a colourful array of characters.

I provides bespoke services in editing, production support & workshops.

 

My artistic mission is to create excellent music driven entertainment, support artists, amplify LGBTQ+ voices and celebrate all aspects of my own & others identities.
