Committee members

...

Ken Edmonds
Chairman

Ken has had experience working for newspapers and knows how pen an article or two! (Who are we kidding, he's probably written thousands!). There is practically no area of the theatre that he has not been involved in - except perhaps costume! He has directed plays, panto, musicals - he has even written some original musicals and plays himself! He also acts, taking on challenging dramatic and comedic roles and is very interested in stage craft.

Emma Lanfranchi
Vice-Chairwoman

When not in committee meetings Emma can usually be found in the workshop or lurking backstage.

...

Niamh McGrogan
Secretary

Niamh been with Wells Little Theatre for five years, and has already left her mark and isn't afraid to get stuck in to all aspects of the theatre. From Shakespearean drama to panto, she'll take on any part thrown at her - even at the last minute - and is always a willing to lend a hand at set painting, open days and any odd jobs here and there. Often found propping up the bar, either serving or depleting the stocks of Peroni.

...

Pauline Perrin
Treasurer

Pauline is our dedicated holder of the purse-strings when she isn't gracing the stage with her presence and talents. She has the unenviable task of keeping the theatre cash-flow going and paying the bills! When not holding the cheque book, she has been known for many fine performances, from musicals to plays and panto (thigh slapping has indeed occurred on occasion!)

Liz Carey
Patrons Secretary

...

Sharon Edmonds
Theatre Administrator

Sharon has been in many shows as a Principal - from the Principal Boy in Panto, to Gloria in Return to the Forbidden planet and she always does a memorable and often hilarious performance. She also helps out in other areas and has started trying out the directors role with panto.

...

Graham Brown
Stage Representative

With a ridiculous amount of expertise in the realm of theatre, Graham can always be relied upon to 'illuminate' an issue. His specialty is lighting for which he has numerous accolades, but he has also been known to take on the Stage Manager or producer role or help with set construction. As such, his back stage knowledge is at expertise level and he can usually be found up a ladder, or plunging the stage into black out when you least expect it!

Mike Scammell
Member

Mike has been a member of the little theatre for 10 years or so and has served on the committee for 5 years. His interests are predominantly as back stage crew or management. A retired property maintenance manager who enjoys antiques and collectibles as a hobby.

Joanna Hartley-Scammell
Member

Joanna has been a member of Wells Little Theatre for over 12 years and mainly works with the properties and archivist departments, and helps elsewhere whenever she can. Currently retired, but previously worked as a qualified Midwife and latterly a Nursery teacher. Joanna now teaches Reiki and Shamanics practices to like minded souls, giving treatments to those who want to experience peace and tranquillity.

Tom Creswick
Member

Tom has been an active member at Wells Theatre since playing the role of Seymour in our 2018 production of The Little Shop of Horrors. He has taken on a variety of principle roles in all of our musicals since this, and is excited to now be seeing the day to day running of the theatre in a more official capacity!
