Charlie Parham

CHARLIE PARHAM is a director and writer working across theatre and film, with a focus on new writing, adaptation and musicals. He recently worked as Second Unit Director on the upcoming Take That-inspired musical film Greatest Days and is currently developing Antic’s new musical adaptation of Starter For Ten as director and as co-writer of book and lyrics. Stage directing work for Antic includes Carmina Victoriana (Wilton’s Music Hall), Collective Rage: A Play In Five Betties (Southwark Playhouse), School Play (Southwark Playhouse), For Those Who Cry When They Hear The Foxes Scream (Tristan Bates) and Hippolytos (V&A). As a writer and performer in drag supergroup DENIM, Charlie played successive sold-out shows at Soho Theatre and the Edinburgh Festival, touring throughout the UK to diverse venues including Glastonbury, Latitude, the Almeida and Trafalgar Studios. He has directed musical cabarets at Wilton’s Music Hall, Arts Theatre West End and Florence’s Boboli Gardens. For screen, Charlie directed musical special The Night Watchmen’s Nativity (Sky Arts). His short films Exit EveFull English and Nightstand have received official selection at festivals worldwide. One of his first jobs working on ITV’s live production of The Sound Of Music inspired Charlie to foster connections between stage and screen – an interest he later developed as a broadcast producer at the National Theatre.
