Musical Theatre

Geoff Cotton has recently completed writing and composing the songs for his first musical, The Queen’s Wrist www.thequeenswrist.com

This wickedly funny show is set in the world of fringe theatre, with its egos, characters, heroes and villains.

The book is the work of Belvedere Pashun, whose WAG! The Musical opens in July in London’s West End at the Charing Cross Theatre.

www.wagthemusical.com


The Queen’s Wrist launches in London on September 10th – 21st at the Olde Rose and Crown Pub in Walthamstow, a legendary launch pad for new musical theatre. For info and tickets, visit www.thequeenswrist.com In addition to composing/writing the songs, Geoff will also MD the show and play the coveted part of Dicky Deal, the shifty agent whose casting couch rarely needs dusting…

Following their first collaboration on The Queen’s Wrist, Geoff will shortly begin work on the songs for Belvedere’s next musical, Norma Jeane The Musical, based on the troubled life of Marilyn Monroe… www.normajeanethemusical.com

Corporate entertainment

As an experienced singer/songwriter, Geoff Cotton is able to offer original, tailor-made songs for individual corporate clients/events.

Given a suitable briefing, songs can be written which feature individuals or departments.  These songs can be submitted in advance for approval and clients can take part in the performance, subject to adequate rehearsal.  Alternatively, individuals can be 'invited' on stage to make a simple contribution.

These bespoke songs are ideal for company functions, Christmas parties, conferences, awards ceremonies, corporate events, birthday parties and wedding receptions.

Following a suitable briefing, Geoff Cotton submits draft lyrics for approval and rewrites are included in the original fee.

He has recently written and performed 'tailor-made' songs for several corporate clients, including Nomura International, Ink Publishing and Cor-FS and Macquarie Bank.
