I had a FABULOUS time collaborating with Neal Foster of The Birmingham Stage Company to bring Tom Gates to the theatre. I worked a lot on the script with a brand new story and my husband Mark wrote the music for the play, with new songs as well as some already featured in the books.
Neal and The Birmingham Stage Company are experts in putting on fantastic children's theatre (Horrible Histories and Gangsta Granny) and Tom Gates: Live on Stage! was on tour all through 2019. It was very exciting for me to see the fabulous sets, designed by Jackie Trousdale with Simon Wainwright's terrific video design and the cast were fantastic. It all culminated in final performances in Dubai - a terrific end to a terrifc year.
