Benji Mowbray
Director, Stage Manager, Composer & Lyricist


I'm a proud Welsh multidisciplinary theatre creative with experience as a director, composer, lyricist, stage manager, Covid supervisor and producer who brings an enthusiastic, focused and organised work ethic to any working environment.

Originally I trained as an Actor-Musician at Rose Bruford College in London and since graduating have found a passion for creating, managing and developing work from behind the scenes. I've developed a specialist skilset in the development of new musical theatre with a comprehensive understanding of the form. I'm particularly passionate about working on new musical theatre and work that celebrates Welsh culture.


I have been lucky to work in a variety of theatrical settings and world class venues for range of renowned theatre producers from Kenny Wax, Playful Productions, ATG Productions as well as being the Artistic Director/Producer for The Bohemians Theatre Company Ltd.
