Peter J Holland
General Management and Theatre Production.
Peter J Holland is currently the General Manager of The Birmingham Stage Company. Based in London he has worked in the company office on Regent Street for the past 3 and a half years.
Working in production and management with BSC he has been fortunate to work on productions of James and the Giant Peach & George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl, Charlotte's Web, The Firework Maker's Daughter by Philip Pullman, Tom's Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce, Horrible Science, Jungle Book and Bagpuss!
Pete was the General Manager for both West End productions of Horrible Histories Barmy Britain Part One & Part Two at the Garrick Theatre London. Both productions of the popular series by author Terry Deary have maintained critical acclaim in their seasons, earning the company the official title for the Longest Running Children's show in West End history. Subsquently these productions have been rewritten for a touring presentation which goes into production in early 2014 ready to embark on a UK National Tour.
The Horrible Histories brand has seen work on over 12 productions under this title including internationally. 2013 saw the World Premier of Terry Deary's Horrible Christmas which played to audiences at Derby Theatre, offering something very different and educational than the usual pantomime. This production will be brought back to The Birmingham Old Rep from November 2014. Peter also produced and production managed a special outing for Horrible Histories Barmy Britain at a week long performance at Kensington Palace. Set within the backdrop of some of the palace rooms, the promenade performance made for a wonderful relationship with Historic Royal Palaces, in which a similar project at Hampton Court Palace is planned for 2014.
Pete has extensive knowledge of management on international touring having overseen productions to New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Bahrain, Qatar and most recently in Australia, all of which have to have the relevant paperwork, visas and documentation to ensure easy, stress free run up before the first performance.
2014 see's some exciting productions heading towards the BSC, and Pete is fortunate to be working towards some exciting ventures for both himself and the company as he is working on many avenues to generate new and exciting theatre.
Thanks for visiting the site, should you have anything you wish to discuss, or projects that maybe of interest please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Pete is always keen to set himself challenges outside of work as much as he relishes opportunities within work. In 2011 Pete cycled to London to Paris for Macmillan Cancer Support, 2012 saw him performing in the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics to a world wide audience. More recently in 2013 Pete successfully scaled Mount Kilimanjaro for Asthma UK in memory of a close friend who died at the age of 18 due to an Asthma Attack. 2014 see's no challenges outlined as yet, but it is inevitable that something will appear in the calendar very soon...
