His production of The Bodyguard is enjoying huge success across the world after national and international tours. This year, 2020, he was to have produced Bedknobs and Broomsticks, The Drifter's Girl, Hello Dolly and Singin' in the Rain.  However, due to the Corona Virus outbreak, these productions have now been re-scheduled to 2021.  Michael directed Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the London Palladium season 2019/20 and Pantoland 2020 which closed prematurely due to the pandemic.

He is one of two Scenic Artists working for Qdos, painting and maintaining their vast stock of scenery. A seasoned actor and pantomime performer, Steve originally started his career as a voice-over artist. He has extensively toured the UK with plays and musicals both as performer and Company and Stage Manager.   Steve has appeared for the past eleven consecutive pantomime seasons at the Theatre Royal Newcastle. He played the Dashing Dick the Candlestick in Beauty and the Beast 2019/20 season. He is a USITT Technical Theatre Award winner for Outstanding Achievement in Scenic Artistry.  During the Pandemic, Steve trained and qualified as a Family Celebrant.
