Role on Committee and what does that entail?
I am just a regular committee member so I do not have any specific roles, but I am involved with the decision making around future shows and directing teams, running of social events and fundraisers, as well as general admin for current shows and concerts, and rehearsals.
What shows have you been in with BAOS?
My first shows with BAOS was THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK, and then I did MADE IN DAGENHAM, and most recently, was almost (!) in MY FAIR LADY.
Favourite show with BAOS and why?
My favourite show with BAOS, although was cancelled on opening night due to COVID-19, would have to be MY FAIR LADY as I was going to be playing Eliza Doolittle, a once in a lifetime role in my opinion! I had great fun exploring the character throughout 6 months of rehearsals and loved working alongside a wonderful production team and fellow cast members.
All-time favourite show? (and why)
This is a hard one because it really depends on my mood, but right now I would probably have to say MAMMA MIA! It is a happy, feel-good show, I love the music of ABBA, and I would love to play Sophie one day. However, I have about 10 other shows that would follow very closely!
From the moment I joined BAOS I felt it was inclusive, welcoming and friendly, and I didn’t feel too intimidated walking in on my own for the first time. I have since made some great friends who I’m sure will become life-long friends. I also think we put on a great variety of shows!
An interesting fact we might not know?
Not sure how interesting this is but I am married to a dairy farmer and we live on the farm. I LOVE farm life!
