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.

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.

Mike Hills

Mike Hills photo

Mike has been a member of Theatre64 for too long to count. His theatrical odyssey began in Bugsy Malone at the age of 14 in school, then exhibited itself in Woking, Bath and Kuwait before he joined Theatre64. He has undertaken acting, directing and writing roles with the group and is close to notching up his 60th role! He is aided and abetted in this by a long suffering wife and two very active boys (see smaller members of the cast). He would usually mention Fulham as well but its just too depressing at the moment. The Aardvark is in rehab.

Peter Jeffares

Peter Jeffares photo

Pete joined Theatre64 ten years ago in their 40th anniversary year. He has appeared in several shows and also directed 'The Wind in the Willows' and 'Private Lives'. After a break of three years, Pete is delighted to have returned to Theatre64 for 'Much Ado About Nothing'. Claudio is a fantastic role to have with a huge range of emotions on show as the story unfolds. Working with Gill as director and a brilliant ensemble cast, this has been the most exciting show Pete has worked on. Pete found the recent workshop with Michael Corbidge an incredible experience which has changed the whole approach of rehearsals and really elevated the standard of the group.

Carole Fowler

Carole has been with T64 more years than she is able or willing to remember. In thwart time she has acted, directed, stage managed, done prompt, lighting, sound, props, box office, made costume, even sung in her own fashion, painted and built scenery. All this and had fun too and intends to keep on till even further into her dotage

Pam Howard

Pam Howard photo

Happy both behind the scenes and performing on stage, the prospect of taking on the role of Dogberry was too good to miss. Working with Gill and the ensemble cast in a very different way has been most enjoyable and at times stretching. When not acting, Pam can often be found rootling around in the storage container or trawling the local charity shops to track down items for costumes.

Debbie Hounsell

Debbie Hounsell photo

Debbie has been with Theatre64 for almost 5 years and has a number of cracking roles under her belt including a drunken lush, a witch (these are her favourites - typecasting at its best!), Red Riding Hood's granny, Billy Liar's mum and, most recently, Elvira in 'Blithe Spirit'. Debbie is also a choral singer, works in I.T. for the NHS and lives with her cat, Misty, in Farnham.

Alan Barber

Alan has been with Theatre64 for over 15 years now - and they still can't get rid of him! He has done just about everything possible both on and off stage - acting, directing, singing, lighting, sound, amongst many others. He was last seen on stage as Nigel the Viking in "A Fete Worse than Death' and is thoroughly enjoying his villainous turn as Don John!He has two daughters, Jessica and Rebecca and works as an administrator in Thames Ditton.

Nick Felgate

Nick, an uncivil civil servant, has contributed his presence to Theatre 64 for many, many years. He lives in Portsmouth with his collection of stage properties (his furniture, crockery etc) which sometimes he is allowed to borrow back from the group! Along with many stage appearances which includes Prof. Van Helsing in 'Dracula' and the QuizMaster in 'Horst Buchholz', Nick has directed plays such as 'The Fosdyke Saga', 'The Golden Pathway Annual', and 'Our Man'.

Rebecca Slocombe

Rebecca Slocombe photo

After a short break, Becky is back treading the boards with Theatre64 in another fantastic show! It has been a real privilege to be part of a play written by one of our own and it is great to be involved with the group again. Apart from trying to remember how to memorise lines (and act!), Becky has thoroughly enjoyed being on stage once more and is looking forward to being part of future shows with the wonderful Theatre64.

Stephanie Hearnshaw

Stephanie has been with the group for almost a year now and has also been in the production of ‘Macbeth’ where she played Fleance and various other parts. She has made many friends here at Theatre64 and enjoys being here. Stephanie has had roles in other plays such as ‘The Crucible’ and Frogmore’s pantomime ‘Peter Pan’, where she played Smee. She attends Yateley Sixth Form College and is currently studying Drama at AS-Level.

Amy Wright

Amy Wright photo

Having seen two previous Theatre 64 productions, 'Jekyll and Hyde' and 'Grimm Fairy Tales', Amy thought it was time to give acting a try herself. Her last performance involved singing and dancing as a maid in 'My Fair Lady'. That was a few years ago when she was in school. Moving from musicals to straight plays has been a big learning curve but great fun.

Brian Cook

Brian Cook photo

Brian joined Theatre 64 early this year without any experience of acting or theatre. Though he missed the production of 'Blue Remembered Hills', he has been more than happy to take to the stage and accept the part of Poole in our latest offering. He hopes to become a familiar face in all future productions.

Gill Richardson

Gill Richardson photo

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 Cruickshank

Sarah Cruickshank photo

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.

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!

Karen Williamson

Karen Williamson photo

Having just obtained a position as a law cost draftsman in London, Karen will finally be joining the rat race with a permanent job. Despite the commute, she hopes to continue her acting with us as well as a few new activities - including Circus skills! This is Karen's third show for us having started as a slutty vampire and moved on to one third of the Chorus in 'Antigone'. Karen also enjoys running the lights and especially climbing the gantry to hang them.

Isobel Richardson

Isobel Richardson photo

Eleven year old Isobel is a pupil at Cove School, Farnborough. Her hobbies include, ballet, modern dance, drama and singing - which she often practises in the shower. This is her second appearance for Theatre 64, having been second flower girl from the left in Pygmalion. Isobel would like to thank her wonderful (my mum wrote this bit) mother for all the support she has given her in preparing for this role, erm... what does nepotism mean mum?!



Nigel Slocombe

Nigel Slocombe photo

As Chairman of Theatre64, it is a real pleasure and delight to see the effort and dedication that the members put in to all of the rehearsals for this production, and the actual show itself. It is a wonderful production which I am sure each and everyone of you will thoroughly enjoy. As a bit of a hands-on person I was happy to help out with the set construction and stage management for the company. Sit back and enjoy the show.

Geoff Davenport

Geoff lives in Fleet and works as a builder. After helping to build props and painting the backdrop for the 'Grimm Fairy Tales', he has stepped in to do lighting for this show. When not working Geoff enjoys playing golf, football and snooker. He is a keen artist and when he has any spare time can be found labouring over his easel. He has no plans to be seen on stage but time will tell...

Haydn Thomas

He also likes to get involved with the pantomime at High Cross Church, Camberley.
