Will Rye, Marketing and Publicity

 

Will joined Bromley Players in 2014 shortly before October’s show. Ever since, he has been a proud member of the society and taken a further role by stepping onto the committee team shortly after playing ‘Sketch’ in the company’s sell-out production of “Hairspray”. “Lend Me A Tenor” then became Will’s first show to be involved in, both on stage and behind the scenes helping to organise social and fundraising events. With a huge passion for art and design Will has taken on the roles of producing merchandise and “promotional design” which include both the “Lend Me A Tenor” poster and the “Jesus Christ Superstar” designs.

Frances Sheehan, Treasurer

Frances has been a member of the Society for a few decades now, through two name changes – St Joseph’s Operatic Society / Bromley Operatic Society / Bromley Players - and also many different theatre venues, from school halls to The Churchill Theatre Bromley, The Stag Theatre Sevenoaks and our latest home, The Bob Hope Theatre, Eltham. During those decades I have enjoyed appearing in many different shows and have now done a few twice, but am amazed at how many new shows we are now performing in the last few years. I joined the committee early on and have been a member through most of the 90s to now.
