a musical for seven soloists and choir

CREATION STORY was Stephen's first stab at a full-length, sung-through musical.    Written during his second year at Goldsmiths, CREATION STORY was performed at the National Garden Festival in 1986 and the following year at the Gatehouse Theatre in Stafford by a terrific cast. It brought him to the attention of the composer Stephen Oliver who met with Stephen to go through the work, encouraged him to keep writing and sent him off to a publisher. Stephen has recently been revising the score for publication on Score Exchange later this year.
