Bec Watson


Bec was involved in her first ever show at Upper Hutt Musical Theatre (UHMT) as the drummer in Chicago in May 2012. Since then she has performed in many shows around the Wellington region as a percussionist but found that Upper Hutt Musical Theatre was where she felt the most at home.

Becs interests in theatre evolved from performing in shows during the time she was doing her Bachelor Degree in Applied Arts (music). It helped her improve her sight reading immensely. She brings her professional skills and sound experience as a trained musician from study, working in a music store, and performing for the past 10 years.

Bec has musically directed The Musical of Musicals! (The Musical) in 2017 and been both the director/musical director and creator of 55 Musicals: Abridged which we put on in 2019.

Currently Bec is enjoying the challenge of being president and has just finished creating and directing Once Upon A Time which she thoroughly enjoyed bringing to the Upper Hutt audience.
