CV

BenjI Mowbray
Producer, Director, Composer & Lyricist
I'm an emerging multidisciplinary theatre creative who provides services as a producer, director, composer & lyricist. I originally trained as an Actor-Musician at Rose Bruford College in London and since graduating have found a passion for creating and developing work from behind the scenes.
l
I have been lucky to work in a variety of theatrical settings and roles from assistant stage manager and understudy on the UK and International tour of Sally Cookson's We're Going on a Bear Hunt to directing and producing work for my own theatre company and independently.
As a writer, I'm a member of Mercury Musical Developments and a first year composer on the Book, Music & Lyrics Musical Theatre writers course. 
I'm particularly passionate about New Musical Theatre and work that celebrates Welsh culture.
