Introducing Conductor and Musical Director Jenni Watson

We are delighted to introduce our very good friend Jenni Watson, who will conduct the performances of Into the Woods in next March 2018.

Jenni is a multi-instrumentalist and a long time friend of Tyne Theatre Productions, having been involved in every show since ‘Pirates of Penzance’ in 2015. She was also part of the musical creative team for their production of ‘West Side Story’ earlier this year.

She has played in pit bands for several theatre groups across the region, with recent credits including ‘The Last Five Years’, ‘A Chorus Line’, ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘Sister Act’. In addition to her work in musical theatre, Jenni teaches violin and piano privately across Newcastle and Gateshead.

She has also worked on several shows with both First Act and Second Act Theatre, both in the band, and as a member of the creative team, recently working as co-Musical Director for First Act’s production of ‘Oliver!’ and Musical Director for Second Act’s ‘Spring Awakening’.
