Theatrical roles and opportunities have come and gone. I love a night at the theatre, who doesn’t? A good role, though, is hard to come by. ‘There’s a girl in my Soup’ was a great play and I had a blast playing the hungover boyfriend ‘Jimmy’. It was a wonderful comedic role.

Theatre and the love of it has come late in my career. My main area of interest has been in radio and television. That’s just the way things worked out at the time. .
In hindsight though I have had to turned down many a theatrical opportunity. Pantomime beckons most years but always seems to clash with other work. My role as Jimmy in ‘There’s A Girl in My Soup’ got great reviews
I was originally asked to audition for the West End role of Danny Zuko opposite Michaela Strachan in the production of ‘Grease’ by David Ian and Paul Nicholas. Due to other commitments I was unable to. The roles were eventually given to Craig Mclachlan and Debbie Gibson.
All of my work and experience had led me to find a new side to the entertainment
, industry to enjoy. NFC or Nino Firetto Casting gave people the opportunity to find work in show-business. I operated NFC for about three years before selling the company and moving in a different direction! It was whilst I was operating NFC that I was asked to become a tour operator in the San Francisco Bay area. That is a whole other story and one which I will tell you about at another time…. watch this space,
