Thomas Guthrie is an innovative and award-winning director, musician, actor and writer working with theatre, music, text and movement to tell stories. He is the founding artistic director of GOTcompany, and founder of the charity Music and Theatre for All.

Equally at home devising new theatrical and musical work, working with actors and singers, performing, arranging, singing and writing, Tom also works with non-professionals of all ages and backgrounds. Some of his most thrilling projects have been in this field, including with Streetwise Opera and the Royal Opera House, through whom he has inspired hundreds to connect with their inner Caruso and raise the roof. His production of Ludd and Isis, an opera commissioned to launch the ROH’s new Production Park in Thurrock, involving a cast of hundreds, including professionals and amateurs of all ages, was acclaimed as ‘one of the Royal Opera House’s grandest achievements’.

“Thomas Guthrie is hot news. His imagination knows no bounds”
