Maryrose SwarbrickMaryrose Swarbrick

Maryrose has worked extensively at all levels in the theatre, amateur and professional, in everything from pantomime to Shakespeare in a variety of roles. Her voice was opera-trained by former Covent Garden soloist Brian Geldard. With her daughters she founded Stage Door, a long-established school of performing arts and theatre company after managing to combine all her interests with her former role as Head of Drama at St. Mary’s Hall, Stonyhurst College for 16 years. She has developed considerable expertise in sound, lighting and other technical aspects of staging and production.However, musical theatre remains her first love, and as a director and choreographer she loves to encourage the young (and not-so-young!) in all aspects of dance and drama, a mission enhanced in recent years by her role as adjudicator with the British and International Federation of Festivals.
