Gerry began his career as an actor in weekly rep at Shanklin Theatre performing in seventeen plays in eighteen weeks and followed this working with repertory companies up and down the country before embarking on a career in musical theatre. In the West End he appeared for fifteen years in many long running musicals and two Royal Variety Performances from The London Palladium. He spent many years touring provincial theatres and has probably appeared in most theatres in the U.K. - many of which no longer exist!
Gerry was working abroad as an Overseas Director, tutor and lecturer has included Hungary and Vienna, Holland, Norway, Jordan, America and Israel.
To date Gerry has been involved in over three hundred theatre productions either as a performer, choreographer or director and continues to lecture on theatre. Dramatic Lines published his book on “Musical Theatre” which is aimed at young people hoping to follow a career in performing arts and he continues to run Masterclasses for the Theatre Royal Haymarket as part of their “opening doors” programme aimed at students gaining places in main stream drama schools.
Gerry is currently Head of Musical Theatre Foundation Course at Guildford School of Acting.
