Direction

We are delighted that Stage Director, Paul Hands and Musical Director, Mark Jones, have agreed to continue with a second year at NNCO. This well-known duo has worked together on no fewer than 18 productions, covering both musicals and opera.

Paul was formerly Director of Drama at Gresham’s for many years, where he worked in conjunction with Mark before retiring. He now directs on a freelance basis and is the director of Litcham Entertainment Group. He has the distinction of having directed multi-award-winning Norfolk actress Olivia Colman.
