When did you join Wetherby Musical Theatre Group?

I joined the Theatre Group in 1982.

Why did you join Wetherby Musical Theatre Group?

Having been a member of the Poynton Theatre Group in Cheshire before moving back to Wetherby in 1981 it was just perfect!

What’s your earliest memory of Wetherby Musical Theatre Group?

My earliest memory of the group was in 1981 after seeing the Pyjama Game, then going along to Hallfield Manor to help make teas!  It didn’t take long before I was taking part in rehearsals for Oklahoma.

What has been your favourite show you have seen/been in?

It is difficult to choose my most favourite show because there have been many but ‘Chicago’ always comes high up on the list.

What has been your favourite memory so far?

Favourite memory must be the closing number from ‘Music Man’ when the cast marched down the centre aisle singing ‘76 trombones’.

What show would you like to see the group put on in the future?

The show I would like to see the group perform again in the future I think would be Fiddler on the Roof.
