My name is Riz Maslen and I am the composer working on Benny and The Greycats.
For me this is a new challenge, having never worked in Musical Theatre before in the role of Composer. I have however worked with Suzanne on a previous Theatre production The Corydon Avengers, but as a Sound Designer.
We are about to go into Day 3 of the R&D at the Crucible and today the actors will be starting rehearsals, it’s a bit daunting as I am in a new sphere and not really knowing what to expect.
This has been an amazing experience so far and I have learned a huge amount already which in my book is a very big positive.
Having spent most of my career as an electronic musician, this has definitely been a baptism of fire into the world of Musical Theatre, at times a little against the clock but so far been an amazing adventure.
