Since debuting with the Edinburgh Young Theatre Company in 1992, Geoff Lee has never been far from the stage. As a child he played Gavroche in the 1993 touring production of Les Misérables and, at the age of 10, briefly shared a stage with the late, great Rudolf Nureyev in Coppelia.
After a long break from theatre he played the part of Wayne in Ben Elton’s Popcorn. Geoff joined the Edinburgh University Savoy Opera Group and played a series of roles, including Hildebrand in Princess Ida, Bill Snibson in Me and My Girl, Lord Mountararat in Iolanthe and The Frog in the musical Honk!
Geoff has also performed with Edinburgh G&S and Alan Borthwick and Friends, appearing as Cheviot Hill in the musical version of W.S.Gilbert’s play Engaged at the Harrogate G&S Festival in 2016. In 2018 he played Grosvenor in Patience, with Cat-Like Tread, at the Fringe and in 2019 he joined Threepenny Theatricals to play Lob in J.M Barrie’s Dear Brutus. Geoff has also been exploring opera with Dr Nell Drew and Voiceark, playing Masetto in Don Giovanni in 2017.
