Writer … Director … Actor … Golden Sony Award Winning Radio Presenter
Tom Bright all round entertainer
Enjoying the crazy world of show business for many years.
His first national success came not on stage, but as a song writer …Tom wrote and performed the ‘Tiswas song’ and from there went on to write many television and film themes. But his real love is the stage.
While still learning his trade in Television, Tom received a phone call asking him to join Russ Abbot, and spent six very happy years at the BBC on the Russ Abbot Madhouse show as an actor.
From there he went into radio with his own Sunday peak time show.
Within his first year of Radio Broadcasting he was awarded an Oscar in Radio ‘The Golden Sony Radio award’
Tom has also become one of the country’s top pantomime Writers and Directors.
50 years as an entertainer
From Wythenshaw Labour club in Manchester to The London Palladium Tom Bright has done it all.
Blackpool Opera House
Starring Paul Nicholas as Ebenezer Scrooge and Tom Bright as The Ghost of Christmas present.
Huge Success on Broadway
This version of the Charles Dickens classic was a huge success on Broadway – not surprising, when you consider the score is by Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens, who are both big names in musical theatre. The Opera House’s massive stage was certainly up to the job too, with a versatile set and classy choreography that covered every inch of it.
The dance numbers were really special, my favourites being Link By Link, featuring Christopher Howell’s excellent Jacob Marley, the ensemble piece Fezziwig’s Annual Christmas Ball and the show stopping Abundance and Charity, complete with end-of-the-pier-show rough and tumble and a tour de force vocal display from Blackpool’s own Tom Bright as a wonderfully avuncular and charmingly cheeky Ghost of Christmas Present.
