With the launch of Angel's Great Escape on Me Books, I thought it was about time we put the spotlight on our fabulous new narrator, David McMullan.
David has a glittering, showbiz story to tell starting at Bird College where he graduated with a BA (Hons) in Dance and Theatre Performance. After graduating he packed his bags and headed to New York to train at the Broadway Dance Centre and other leading dance studios in Manhattan.
David was then drawn back to the bright lights of London where he has starred in legendary West End musicals such as Mary Poppins (Prince Edward Theatre), Hairspray (Shaftesbury Theatre, as understudy for leading man Link Larkin) and more recently Book Of Mormon (Prince of Wales Theatre). David has also danced and sung his way around productions of Love Never Dies, Ragtime, She Stoops to Conquer, Rent, Lend Me a Tenor, Cinderella, Aladdin and Peter Pan to name but a few!
Rather excitingly, in 2013, David worked with Sam Mendes during the creative process for the original West End production of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory as rehearsal stand-in for Charlie.
In amongst the showbiz shenanigans, David has also found time to develop his one-man musical comedy show Boy Meets World performed at Lauderdale House. And he is also one half of new comedy duo 'Dickie & Dave' who premiered their first sketch comedy, Tea For Two, at the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2013.
I've been lucky enough to have known David for a few years now and he's already been involved in table reads that me and my comedy-script-writing-partner have held. He's always been great at throwing himself into character and doing a whole range of accents. With such glittering credentials, I was over the moon when he agreed to narrate and provide character voices for Angel's Great Escape. We had such a ball during the recording. David was brilliantly enthusiastic about each and every one of the SEVENTEEN (!) character voices and he's really brought the story to life in a whole different way.
I really hope that you'll download the Me Books app and buy Angel's Great Escape not only as a lovely Christmas treat but also to hear how fantastically David can go from being a grumpy old Mr Mean to a cosy Teddy decoration to a jolly Father Christmas (see below)!
