Sue has been involved in musical theatre ever since she received her first dancing shoes at the age of three. As a dancer she has performed in many musicals and dance recitals over the years and began teaching dance in the late nineties.
It was while she was teaching that she was approached to choreograph for both Upper Hutt Musical Theatre (UHMT) and Hutt City Musical Theatre (HCMT).
From 1999 she choreographed a number of shows and musical revues including Celebrating Oscar for UHMT, Their Finest Hour, Footloose and Spamalot for HCMT.
More recently she choreographed Blood Brothers in 2018, was co- choreographer for 55 Musicals: Abridged in 2019 and was one of the directors for The Musical of Musicals! (The Musical) for UHMT in 2017.
Sue has served on the Upper Hutt Musical Theatre committee since she was first elected in March 2014. Since then she has also been the Wardrobe Manager for the theatre and Wardrobe Manager for the musicals Dusty in 2014, Oliver! and I Love You Because in 2016 and Into the Woods in 2018.
Since March 2019 Sue has served as President of Upper Hutt Musical Theatre. She feels very honoured to have been elected to serve in this role and is fully committed to continuing what began in 1975; bringing musical theatre to the community of Upper Hutt.
