Stephen is currently directing the world premiere of Jonathan Harvey's newest musical-comedy, celebrating the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool, A THONG FOR EUROPE.
He recently directed RENT at LIPA, and The Royal Court theatre's most successful Christmas show, SCOUSE JACK AND THE BEANSTALK, playing to over 55,000 people.
Stephen has worked in the Performing Arts since 2002- graduating from LIPA (The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) with a First-Class BA Honours Degree in Acting.
Since then he has worked extensively in Theatre, TV, Radio and Voiceovers.
As a Director, he has staged a number of productions; most recently, a sell-out and extended run of The Scouse Jack and The Beanstalk, and his co-written comedy, Making It, both at Liverpool's Royal Court. In summer 2022, his self-penned disco-musical, MAM I'M ERE, returned to a sell-out crowd, following the restrictions of lockdown, and having appeared in many of them over the years, he directed his first Royal Court Christmas show, The Scouse Sleeping Beauty.
He directed NHS THE MUSICAL for Theatre Royal Plymouth in 2021, and also worked as Artistic Advisor for The Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Theatres.
During lockdown, he co-created a mini-web series called THIS IS OUR BEV, entertaining tens of thousands of people across social media. He also raised £20,000 with his crowdfunded POP-UP PANTO, taking pantomime across the city region's schools, employing local creatives and entertaining thousands of children- for free.
He is a Dramaturge for a number of new plays and musicals, and is also producer of the award-winning production company, Life in Theatre Productions- creating new work, employing local talent, and entertaining tens of thousands of people since 2012.
As a performer he has appeared on TV and in numerous stage plays across the UK and the West End.
He has worked alongside Phyllida Lloyd, Jamie Lloyd, Cal McCrystal (SCOUSE NATIVITY), Peter Kosminsky, Jonathan Harvey, Noreen Kershaw, Willy Russell, Ian Talbot, Thelma Holt, Adrian Vinken and more. He is one of the original members of The Old Vic New Voices Company, a regular voice on Radio 4 Drama productions and commercial voiceovers.
