Bruce Morrison’s career and talents encompass every aspect of the Theatre : actor, singer, musician, writer, director …
From London’s glamorous West End to glittering Arts Festivals worldwide, he has successfully performed and produced a truly theatrical kaleidoscope from Shakespeare to Showbiz. His first performance onstage was in the very first professional production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOUR DREAMCOAT; he trained for the stage at London’s prestigious Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art and at the Royal Academy of Music, going on to create his first Theatre Company at the Edinburgh International Festival.
As well as his leading performances in plays, musicals and revues over the years throughout the UK and abroad, Bruce has performed as a Headline Cabaret act, and has directed productions, on a number of the world’s most iconic ocean liners. He is one of the UK’s leading exponents of the art of Solo Performance, from Charles Dickens to Noël Coward, and especially in a dazzling and dramatic Trilogy of Shakespeare productions, which was invited to combine and headline in a ‘Tour De Force’ evening-long Gala extravaganza at the world-famous Barbados Holders Hill Arts Festival!
