Qualifications and Experience    

Member of ADA and GODA


Involved with theatre for almost fifty years, Alan has a wealth of experience as an actor, singer, director and adjudicator. He is a member of The Association of Drama Adjudicators, Ireland and the Guild of Drama Adjudicators, UK. 


With Londonderry Amateur Operatic Society he played leading roles in every show from Camille in ‘Merry Widow’ (1975) to Fagin in ‘Oliver’ (2001). He has directed award-winning musicals for LAOS and Strabane Musical Society as well as musicals for Bangor Operatic Society, the Ulster Operatic Company and St. Patrick’s Hall Theatre Group, Strabane. 


His drama career includes work with City of Derry Drama Club, Two Bridges Theatre Group and Lifford Players. As artistic director of Two Bridges Theatre Group, which he formed in 1997, he has directed many productions including six festival plays (two of which reached the All Ireland Confined Finals) as well as the AUDF One Act Final.


Before retiring, Alan was an advisory officer for music & drama with the Western Education & Library Board for 30 years. He has also studied at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, applying his studies to the ‘Write An Opera’ project in primary schools (under the auspices of Leeds University and ROH), where the children write and perform their own opera, taking all the roles onstage and off, from musical director to PR Officer with Alan as director. He has directed four of these operas in schools throughout N. Ireland. He still directs St. Mary’s PS main biannual production in the Alley Theatre, Strabane. This doesn’t clash with his many adjudications in the UK and throughout Ireland.
