Member from 1976 to present


My first memory of Players is singing 'Half Way Up the Stairs' at age seven. Since then, I have played a variety of parts from a duck (Alice in Wonderland) through to roles such as Dorothy (Wizard of Oz) and Elizabeth Bennett (Pride and Prejudice). My favourite part was Roberta (The Railway Children) and my most memorable ‘moment' on the St Lawrence stage has to be in the play Rebecca !!! Most importantly Players has been a place where life-long friendships have been made, supporting me at all times through my life and for that I am truly grateful.
