As part of our 40th Anniversary celebrations, we thought you might like to get to know a little more about the staff and volunteers that make us who we are!
- Why did you volunteer with Melton Theatre?
- To see how the theatre is run; to see shows I might not normally choose to see; to feel I was being useful; and to contribute to the community
- What do you enjoy about volunteering here?
- The atmosphere; the different people you meet; and the variety of shows
- How long have you volunteered with us?
- 2 years
- Who or what has been your favourite star/show/experience with us?
- Marcus Brigstocke – I can’t wait for him to come back again this season!
- Can you let us know of your funniest experience/incident at the Theatre?
- Henning Wehn entered through the rear doors of the theatre to begin his show, I didn’t know and managed to walk in to him as he did it!
- What was the first show you remember here?
- TMMTC’s production of Oh What A Lovely War
- How has the theatre changed over the years?
- The refurbishment of the college was still ongoing when I first volunteered, it is now a much more modern facility!
- What does the theatre mean to you?
- It’s a vibrant place for people to come together and enjoy themselves. I come to the theatre a lot as a patron with my partner – mainly for the comedy shows. The theatre is a great facility for the local community.
