Role at the theatre: Errr – Friend of the theatre
Location: Lowestoft (yes I think I live the furthest away and appear the least so I try to make it count)
How did you get involved? My friends introduced me to the theatre about years ago after working with them at other festivals on tech work. I helped with some of the tech and loved the friendly atmosphere.
What do you at Doncaster Little Theatre? For those of you who have a geographical understanding of the UK you will know that Lowestoft is not very close (3 hours of not very close)! So I try to visit every 1-3 months to show my face when work allows and I generally help behind the bar. The rest of the time I seem to have fallen into the role of Social Media Manager – meaning I have probably scheduled all the Facebooks posts. Even with living so far away new jobs spring up, I am always surprised by how well supported the theatre is financially but I know that giving only goes so far and have worked on grants in the past in my life on the East Coast so I plan to bring some of that to DLT when I can.
Best show? Panto by far… I try and see it every year. I also enjoy when BBC radio visit the theatre.
Why should other people become a member? It is an amazing community, even as someone on the fringe there are ways for me to be involved. This is especially important as I cannot act, sing or dance, but there is still a place for me here.
