Ritchard Tysoe

Member from 1982 to present


I first joined Players in 1982 and helped backstage for Pygmalion. The next production saw me in my first role, which was in Confusions by Alan Aykbourn. A role that I played again 22 years later in 2004. I always used to sign my name on the back of the set during the run of a production. It often helped to remind me of the fun times and experiences that accompanied each show. Some have disappeared now though, and the memories are fading…
