Hi, I am Barry Crossley, I live in Holmfirth, Yorkshire with my wife Laura and our children Oliver (9) and Lily (3). I started performing in Pantomimes in 1992 in my local amateur dramatic society, St Dustan's AODS. I continued to play the Dame in the pantomime group for the next ten years then landed a role in professional panto with Spillers Pantomimes in Wakefield in 2000/1. I played 'Mucky Mick' in "Mother Goose". Here I met some amazing people whom I am still friends with today. This experience inspired me to come back home and start writing pantomimes myself. I starred in my first self written panto at Hyde Festival Theatre in 2007 for Hyde Little Theatre. I continued to write and play the dame at Hyde Little Theatre for the next 7 years. My scripts have since been used by many other local societies, most of whom have come back for more.
If you decide to perform one of my scripts, I will be here to support and help you in anyway I can. I have performed as the Dame in nearly all of my scripts, so I have first hand knowledge of all of the roles and I have seen them work.
My character 'FLESHCREEP' in "Jack & The Beanstalk" won a NODA Award for Best Comedy Performance 2016.
If you have any questions or request, please drop me an email and I will respond to you as soon as I can.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my site and I hope to be working with you soon
