Craig started performing at the young age of 10 when he secured the role of Peter the Goat Herd in "Heidi" for one of the summer schools at the local theatre. This ignited a spark in Craig and lead him to join the youth theatre which he was an active part in until he went away to study Drama and Musical Theatre at Cumbria Institute of the Arts where he gained a 2:1 degree. Following this Craig made his debut in holiday resorts working for Haven Holidays where he spent 3 seasons.
Looking for something different Craig then went into children’s theatre for 2 years touring the UK’s schools and small venues with a number of classic literature shows and pantomimes for M&M Theatrical productions. After two years on the road Craig felt it was time to return to resorts and that’s when Craig first found Searles. After a season with Searles Craig had an amazing opportunity to take his skills to the open waves and spent 2 years as a children’s presenter and actor for Disney Entertainment on their cruise Line. Craig was drawn back to land by the draw of two national tours with Blunderbus Theatre Company.
Last year Craig re-joined the team here at Searles and is really excited to be on the team again for 2017 and looks forward to making more magical moments with you on your holiday with us!
