Russ Pitcher

Russ Pitcher photo

Russ has done almost everything you can in and around a stage, even singing nearly in tune! 'Much Ado..' has been an amazing experience, not just working with a great cast and crew, but learning so much from being part of the OpenStages programme. Previous roles he has enjoyed include Macbeth, Donald in 'Blue Remembered Hills' and a down-and-out muppet. Russ has a geeky IT job and lives in Fleet in an organised pile of bricks that is helping the local tradesmen weather the cutbacks.

Scott Basham

Scott Basham photo

Scott works as a software developer, and drama represents his last hobby to resist being computerised. He acted in various shows during his 14 years in Edinburgh, where he also played in a plethora of dodgy-looking 60s styled bands. When not using words like plethora he still writes and records music. This is Scott's fourth Theatre64 production, having appeared in 'Dracula', 'Antigone' and 'The Importance of Being Ernest'. He lives in Wokingham with a small garden shed, 150 Doctor Who videos and a functioning guillotine.

Nikki Smith

Nikki lives in Yateley and teaches Science at a Farnborough school. Her debut part was that of Gwendolen in 'The Importance of Being Earnest'. This show will be her first role on the stage, as the last play was carried out in the well; there is still time for stage fright! Nikki has recently begun tap and modern dance again after an eight year break, and hopes to dance on stage again.

Gill lives in Farnborough and has been a member of Theatre64 for a while! (She thought it was ten years but it turns out it's much more than that!)She enjoys both acting and directing; although it's been a while since she was last treading the boards. As a director she has thoroughly enjoyed the whole Open Stages experience as it has been a really exciting way of approaching performance in a holistic way. The learning process has been amazing - so thank you to all involved.

Sarah's first play with Theatre64 was 'Dracula' in 1998, where she had three small parts. This was followed by parts in 'The Importance of Being Earnest' and 'Pygmalion'. 'Antigone' gave her the opportunity to play the role of Ismene. Sarah has also enjoyed her first Shakespeare speaking role in 'Macbeth'. She also had the pleasure of acting under the direction of her father in 'Billy Liar', where she played Liz one of Billy's girlfriends. Sarah's other hobbies include, literature, musicals, silk painting and retail therapy.

 

 

Claire Sergeant

Claire is a teacher in Frogmore, She has recently bought a house in Yateley so unfortunately the group is stuck with her for a while! Claire was last on stage in Theatre 64's award-winning 412 Letters, winning the Best Actress award at Spelthorne Festival. Before that she was seen as Lady Macbeth in 'Macbeth'. Claire has recently married theatre64's Jeremy Barber.

Jeremy Barber

Jeremy Barber photo

Jeremy has appeared on stage sporadically and the last time was also as a soldier in Still Lives & Smoking Jackets. The opportunity to revisit No Mans Land however was to good to turn down, having enjoyed playing Hans in the previous version. Jack however has been a very different character to learn (not helped by the 3 pages added by Mr Hills part way through the run - Thanks Mike!). Knowing it was a short rehearsal run meant it didn't impinge on his time too much as Jeremy is in the midst of raising 4k for Wessex Heartbeat to allow him to trek to Everest Base Camp in November. He has thoroughly enjoyed treading the boards again and is looking forward to seeing all the audience at the quiz on the 8th March!

Martyn Lewis

As a long time supporter of London Welsh Rugby Club, Martyn has much personal experience of tragedy. A long-standing member of the group, Martyn played Prospero in the recent Theatre 64 production of 'The Tempest' but feels that he has grown up since then and wont do it again - however he did manage another mammoth part recently, playing Creon in 'Antigone'. This is Martyns directorial debut for Theatre 64.
