Paul Sherman has been a teacher pretty well all of his life, specialising in Chemistry and Youth Theatre, an unlikely combination, but one which has worked brilliantly. He has directed a number of successful straight plays and musicals, including ‘The Crucible’, ‘West Side Story’, ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ and ‘The Entertainer’.
His writing credits include short stories and poetry for a number of UK publications. He also writes drama having had a pantomime produced at the Rutherglen Repertory Theatre near Glasgow and a play at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh. He is a bit mystified by the success in Scotland since he comes from the other end of the country.
He is married, celebrating his 40th Wedding Anniversary this year and has two daughters and a jet black cat called Gertie.
