The Creatives

James Morris

DIRECTOR

James started directing with LAODS in 2013 with the musical Anything Goes – a 1930s musical farce with a fierce focus on complicated tap routines. James continued to direct for LAODS in 2014 and 2015, producing Guys and Dolls, closely followed by the ever popular Spamalot, written by Eric Idol and the Monty Python crew. It was during Spamalot’s design phase that James found his love of costume design. James created many of the costume items for Spamalot, along with a very talented production team, producing over 170 costumes from concept to actuality. In 2018, James directed Into the Woods and again, took a central role not only to directing the show, but producing it from initial concept to fruition including, costume and lighting design, to creating latex prosthetics for the witch and dryads. James returns to directing this year’s show – Little Shop of Horrors and whilst remaining true to the original to ensure the cult followers are not disappointed, is eager to introduce some more interesting twists and unique elements to the production.

David Williams divides most of his time between musical theatre, piano teaching, improving his jazz-piano technique and fatherhood. His musical training was at Huddersfield University and later Keele, where he specialised in electro-acoustic music and experimental music-theatre. His involvement in musicals on the other hand started at Rufford School in Edwinstowe where he ran a small music department for three years. On becoming self-employed, he joined CAODS as MD for their 2002 production of Hello Dolly and LAODS for West Side Story in 2006. He has also MD’d for The Phoenix Players, Lindum Light Operatic Society, Scunthorpe Gilbert & Sullivan AOS, Jolly Mule and the 2015 production of Jesus Christ Superstar in Lincoln Minster.
