Trisha Ward

Executive Producer and Creator : “The Two Wolves”

Trisha is a prolific writer of pop songs and musical theatre. At 15 she wrote the musical adaptation of Macbeth, Nightshriek, which won her a Time Out Critic’s Award for Best Musical. Trisha beat The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables to win this award. She went on to set up and run IMPACT, the first professional theatre company in Cleveland in her native North East.

During this time, Trisha wrote Behold the Man which was adapted into a film and televised across the ITV network.

After moving to London, Trisha was signed up by Warner Brothers Publishing and wrote two further stage musicals, Forever Yours and Lonely Hearts, both of which were staged in London.

Trisha also worked on the feature film and West End theatre production of her musical adaptation of Sleeping Beauty for which she wrote music, lyrics and a book.

Trisha wrote the music and lyrics and  co-produced – with classical Brit Award winner Rupert Christie – the No 1 album Coronation Street: Rogues, Angels, Heroes & Fools which was released in December 2010 for the 50th Anniversary of the iconic soap. The album achieved much critical acclaim.

Trisha has recently signed an exclusive worldwide publishing agreement with Sony Music UK for the administration of her work and her individual stand-alone songs are in much demand for licensing.

Review for Trisha’s first musical Nightshriek:‘Cancel all engagements. Beg or even steal a ticket, hammer on the theatre door until they let you in – it is little short of astounding when one learns that the book, music and lyrics of Nightshriek are all work of Trisha Ward’. – The Times

‘Ward displays an exceptional talent for pace and rhythm – producing a fine range of powerful musical numbers. She is tipped as the next Andrew Lloyd-Webber and it is easy to see why’
– Time Out.
