The Livingston Players – Committee Members
Louise has been a member of Livingston Players since 2015 and had been in musicals and plays including The Steamie, The Odd Couple, Allo Allo, 9 to 5 and Made in Dagenham. She enjoys being part of the committee almost as much as she enjoys being onstage and brings her passion and enthusiasm to everything she does. She feels extremely privileged to be President of this incredible company.
Since first appearing with the Livingston Players way back in the 2006 production of “The Scarlet Pimpernel” playing the villainous Robespierre, he has become a more regular on stage presence for the Players including taking lead roles in several plays and musicals, including Bill Snibson in “Me and My Girl”, Mickey Johnston in “Blood Brothers”, and Rene Artois in “Allo Allo”. After appearing in over 100 musicals and plays in and around Edinburgh, this is his second stint on committee and hopes he will bring a little of the knowledge he has amassed in that time to help out.
Pam has returned to the committee to take on the role of Secretary. She has been with the Players since 2008 and was with Downfield Musical Society in Dundee prior to coming to Livingston in 2000. She has previously been Vice President, President, Box Office Manger and Choreographer to name but a few and is looking forward to her new role. She has had several principal/supporting roles in both Musicals and Plays but her favourite and most challenging by far was Mrs Lovett in the 2015 production of Sweeny Todd.
Carol has been with the Livingston Players for over 20 years and has taken part in many musicals and plays. She can often be seen and heard in the chorus and thoroughly enjoys learning her craft in plays. Her favourite role so far was Mel in “Shakers” in 2010. Carol has been an active Committee member for many years and is a past President. She acts as the Child Protection Officer for the Players. Carol is one of our Life Members and was surprised and delighted to receive this honour.
I have been a member of the Livingston players since 2017 starting off performing with the youth cast in Les Mis. I’ve been a keen and enthusiastic member in each youth musical performance since. I’m actively a chorus member and dancer and love soaking up the atmosphere of each rehearsal and show. I recently got my HNC in acting and performance and look forward to applying what I’ve learned to future musicals and plays. The Livingston players hold a special place in my heart as the first time I performed in a musical without it being solely dance related was with this on stage family. I’m really looking forward to bringing forth my ideas and enthusiasm to the committee for as long as they’ll have me!
Ewan has been involved in the amateur arts in West Lothian for over 20 years and been a member of Livingston Players since 2010. He has performed in “Fiddler on the Roof”, “Calendar Girls”, “’Allo ‘Allo” and “Made in Dagenham”. Ewan particularly enjoys a One Act play and, most recently, was part of the production team for “Winners”. He strongly believes that amateur drama should be for everyone and in the positive difference that it can make to people’s well being. Ewan is delighted to have the opportunity to serve on the committee.
