Jeremy's new production of Kisses on a Postcard, Terence Frisby's musical about his years as an evacuee in the West Country was a recent triumph at the Queen's Theatre, Barnstaple and the show’s future looks healthy.

Following his recent hugely successful productions of The Ballad of Salomon Pavey for the International Youth Arts Festival at The Rose Theatre and the Cambridge Summer Music Festival at The Arts Theatre, with a series of music theatre workshops and a major new production of Captain Stirrick also for IYAF at The Rose, he is now directing a new production of Howard Goodall and Charles Hart’s fine musical,  The Dreaming for the 2012 Festival in Kingston at The Rose Theatre.

In August Jeremy will be directing a workshop production of Joseph for The New Beacon School and wil be returning to Dublin in August to run workshops for Music Theatre for Youth (MT4Uth).

Longer term plans include working with King's College Junior School, Wimbledon on their exciting plans for their Centenary celebrations in 2012, and a trip to Sydney in 2013 to work on a new music theatre piece at Shore School in Sydney.

Jeremy has also recently joined Hobsons, the theatrical agency, as adviser and talent-spotter for its new Youth section.

HiawathaIn August 2008 Jeremy James Taylor took Hiawatha! to the Edinburgh stage, and it has since been invited to be part of a new festival in Lodz in Poland in October 2009.

One reviewer for the Guardian wrote that Taylor's Hiawatha! “gave the Fringe one of its best children's shows this year” and praised the “meticulous rehearsal process” which was evident in “every aspect of the show”. In particular, it was the “strikingly visual and incessantly physical” style which drew the attention, where the cast was used to create stunning scenes of mountains, forests and camp fires.
