Stewart and Tricia formed Stetson Productions Ltd in October 1973. Since then they have developed a number of companies under the overall umbrella of The Stetson Group not only in New Zealand, but also in Australia, the UK and the US.
The early days were very much a case of learning ‘on the job’, but it didn’t take too long to develop into a professional business. Both Stewart and Tricia have a single goal – to always have the best show on the stage at every performance – which entails looking after a tour in great detail. Their satisfaction comes from stimulated and appreciative audiences.
Over almost four decades many people have worked with Stetson, and gone on to either become Producers, or stayed in the profession in a chosen specialised area.
They have toured hundreds of Artists – many have made return visits to New Zealand. Stewart’s contact and working relationship with overseas Managements & Agents is an integral part of Stetson…. he keeps contact with regular trips overseas.
