Nathan Benjamin


Whilst Nathan was a student he was a part of the University of Bristol Pantomime Society. His time in this group saw me play everything from Indiana Jones to King Philip the Second of Spain, as well as gaining a wealth of experience backstage. Last year he used this experience to direct the sell out Edinburgh Fringe show Sweeney Todd: The Panto.  His grandparents used to take him to see pantomimes at the Floral Pavilion every year, so he is very excited to be part of the new Chrysanthemums show!
