OWEN WHITE

Role on Committee and what does that entail?

Treasurer. I keep an eye on the finances of the company and budget our spending. I also invoice and pay all the lovely people we work with!!

What shows have you been in with BAOS?

In terms of main shows, I have been in OLIVER! and HAIRSPRAY with BAOS and more recently MY FAIR LADY. I have worked backstage on props for a fair few shows too and have co-directed and directed the last two summer concerts. Currently, I am excited about my role as assistant director for our newest production, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS.

Favourite show with BAOS and why?

Hmmm… tricky question! For me, there was something so special about our A CLASS APART concert. A Class Apart was the first time I directed a full performance on my own and carries lots of great memories.

All-time favourite show? (and why)

AVENUE Q... I think. I love the music, the comedy and the puppets! It’s just a very clever show! Honourable mentions include SWEENEY TODD, COME FROM AWAY and HAMILTON.

Why BAOS?

As one of the original ‘limelighters’, I was made to feel so welcomed by the adult company. I knew I would want to join when I turned 16 and I am so happy that did!

An interesting fact we might not know?

I am currently in my final year at Oxford Brookes University studying History.
