Crew Member

Describe your character in 3 words.

Attentive, nosey, loyal

Why did you want to be in Return to the Forbidden Planet?

Loved the music and wanted to be involved in what I knew would be a fun show once I had got to grips with the script. The young members sold it to me and I respected their views and they were correct.

What’s your favourite song in the show and why?

There are so many great songs and sang so well but I suppose my favourite if I have to choose would be Go Now, I shed a tear every time I hear Cath sing it.

What has been your favourite thing about rehearsals?

I have been so impressed with all our lovely young members in their principle roles. It was a joy to watch them develop in confidence and produce great characters as well as see friendships develop.

Why should we go and buy tickets?

You cannot afford to miss a show that put Shakespeare and 60’s music together. Really worth a good night out!
