MICK REEVE - STAGE MANAGER
I am stage mnager for the Players and have been for more years than I can remember. I enjoy the props I am asked to produce and spend a great deal of time thinking up ways to make sure the stage always looks good. I'm also chairman of a local Scout Group which takes up a lot of my time. Apart from chauffering around some of my grandchildren, tending my garden and looking after my pond and fish, which I enjoy, there never seems to be enough hours in the day. I have been married to Kah for fifty six years and we enjoy holidays abroad and in theUK, especially Cornwall where we lived for a number of years. I'm look forward to the coming show and have lots of ideas with America featuring in most scenes.
LEE EVANS - CAST
I first joined the group in January 1990 for the performance of ‘Anything Goes’ and was thrust to the front of the stage straight away for curtain up! I have taken part in many shows since, but have had to juggle them around football commitments, which meant I missed a lot of Summer shows.
I also took a break from the group in 1993 when I left to become a Redcoat at Butlins in Minehead, spending 2 fantastic years at my ‘spiritual home’ in without doubt my best job.
We all return eventually and the draw of the stage brought me back to this wonderful group and cast, in which I have made many wonderful friends. I have loved every show that I have appeared in, but my favourite one simply has to be Tributes & Legends. A show that I produced for the very first time in July 2010. That was a very proud moment to see my thoughts and ideas coming to life on the stage.
I am married to my lovely (and very supportive!) wife Laura, with two fantastic children in daughter Casey and son Luke. Both who I have no doubt, will either follow me on stage or onto the football pitch!
I love performing in this group and like to think I give my all in every performance. Entertaining people is in my family’s blood and putting smiles on people’s faces is one of the most rewarding things I will always take from my life.
MARCIO CONTADOR - CAST
Marcio joined us in 2013 for his first show as a Player. He heralds from Brazil, so brings a bit of international flare to the group. His dance moves are something to be admired and put the rest of the men to shame. Amongst his many talents Marcio can balance 3 lemons on his head whilst reciting Mary Had A Little Lamb.
