ABOUT LIAM GARTLAND
Liam is a commercial theatre producer based in London. In 2021, Liam was named one of the ‘Rising Stars of the West End’ after producing a sell-out one night concert of Drew Gasparini’s ‘I Could Use A Drink’ at The Garrick Theatre.
Gartland Productions was founded in 2021. In January 2023, Liam produced the European premiere of the Smash-Hit Broadway Musical 'Head Over Heels'. This laugh-out-loud love story is set to the music of the iconic 1980’s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s. A hilarious, exuberant celebration of love, 'Head Over Heels' follows the escapades of a royal family on an outrageous journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction—only to discover the key to their realm’s survival lies within each of their own hearts.
Previous productions include; Daddy Issues (Seven Dials Playhouse), LIFT (Southwark Playhouse), Tell Me Straight (King's Head Theatre) and A Song For Christmas (Iris Theatre).
In 2020, Liam co-founded The Grad Fest, an award winning company providing performance opportunities and support for recent theatre graduates. The Grad Fest were awarded a 'ONEOFF Special Award' for their dedicated work through the pandemic supporting theatre graduates and were nominated for the 'Recognition Award' by Industry Minds.
