MEET THE 2018 CREW

Murray Spear:

Assistant Director


Murray is our longest serving member of GYP. His last performance for the company was as Demetrius in our 2017 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Unable to quite leave the company behind him, he is instead embracing the backstage role of assistant director. You may not see him appear on our stages but he will be carrying the production from behind-the-scenes with our wonderful director.

Jake Bussell:

Director of Music


Jake is currently taking a year out between his A-Levels at Pate’s and starting psychology at the University of Birmingham this October. In the past, Jake has had several stage roles, appearing as Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music, and providing music in The Three Lives of Antigone, and The Wizard of Oz. As well as performing and composing the songs and incidental music for this year’s show, Jake has recently begun developing his skills in recording and music production. He is very excited to be involved with GYP for the first time and looks forward to adding a musical dimension to this year’s show.
