Associate Musical Director/Conductor
Bill Kenwright Ltd.
Director: Bill Kenwright
Based on the much loved sixties film starring Hayley Mills, the Bill Kenwright production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s and Jim Steinman’s hit musical is an extraordinary and uplifting tale about the transforming power of love.
Relocated to America’s Deep South, a 15 year old girl discovers a mysterious man hiding in a barn. When she asks his identity the first words he utters are "Jesus Christ"; it's as if all her prayers have been answered. The girl and the town's other children vow to protect the stranger from the world that waits outside; meanwhile the townspeople are determined to catch a fugitive recently escaped from gaol…
Whistle Down The Wind's multi-award-winning songs - including one of the most popular hits of recent times: No Matter What (Boyzone) - and a powerful all new staging combines epic storytelling with intimate emotion as the innocence of children collides with the cynicism of the adult world.
Kelvin began Whistle as assistant MD, though was soon promoted to Associate Musical Director/Conductor and conducted the UK No.1 tour for almost a year.
