BROS Current Committee Members

Patron - Alan Titchmarsh

To say that BROS Theatre Company changed my life is no idle boast. I joined in 1972, for Half a Sixpence. Over the course of that year I met the girl I eventually married, and the handful of folk who were to become my best friends. Forty-four years on, they are still there – wife included.

President - Bob Salter

I joined BROS in 1974 and have completed 40 years as chorus member, principal, director, committee member, Chairman and now President. Complete failure as back stage crew. Sadly, I will never now play Higgins in My Fair Lady.

Chair - Louise Ellard-Turnbull

I joined BROS back in 1996 for Chicago, a rare joy for amateurs these days because of it’s incredibly successful West End and Broadway modern incarnation. As one of a fairly large chorus of cell block girls, I twirled my tassels alongside another newbie, Lizzie Brignall, who definitely outdid me as far as twirling of tassels was concerned. But it didn’t put me off and since then I have had the pleasure of being in a total of 25 shows – 6 Richmond, 4 Minack, 12 Hampton Hill, and 3 other small but perfectly formed venues.  I’m proud to have contributed to the backstage dressing room drama by helping to create the hair and make- up designs for so many shows, which are too numerous to mention. I’ve also had several stints on the committee over the years, been nominated for 2 Swan awards (it’s fine that I didn’t win, honestly, it’s fine), and most prestigious and highly prized of all, I have a grand total of 3 BROSCARS! I’ve also managed to meet my husband with whom I have had two very gorgeous children, have made the best friends anyone could ever wish to have, and met the British legend that is Alan Titchmarsh! All as a result of joining BROS! So I am particularly proud to be Chair for a society that has truly enriched my life over the past 21 years.

Deputy Chair - Helen Lowe

I joined BROS in 2005 for the fantastic production of Chess and have enjoyed singing and dancing my way through shows at Hampton Hill and the Minack ever since. It’s been fantastic to make some great friends whilst performing in productions of a really good quality. Please do get in touch if you are interested in being part of this friendly and dynamic group of performers!

Treasurer - Jonathan Warriss-Simmons

I’ve been performing in musicals ever since university, and joined BROS when I moved to London in 2005. Despite having moved several counties away since then, I’ve continued performing with the society due to their passion, talent and friendship. I’m not an accountant by trade, but enjoy being able to give something back to a group that has had a really positive impact on my life.

Secretary - Heather Stockwell

I joined BROS in 2010 to help backstage with Crazy For You at Richmond Theatre. Since then I have performed in Guys and Dolls, Into the Woods, Mack and Mabel, City of Angels, Pippin, 42nd Street and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Most recently I was behind the scenes once more, beehiving my way through the barnets of the Made in Dagenham ladies. I love being a part of BROS because of the people and the fun that we have on stage!

Chorus Lines & Notifications Editor - Emma Hosier

Having joined the company in 2014, Emma has enjoyed performing in several BROS shows, with her favourite role to date being Rosemary Pilkington in ‘How To Succeed In Business’. She would strongly recommend joining the company on one of its biennial ‘family holidays’ to Cornwall for a chance to perform at the unique cliff-side Minack theatre (not to mention all the pasties!)

Website Editor - Darren Moss

I joined BROS in 2013, and my first show with the company was City of Angels. Since then, I’ve performed in Pippin, Carousel, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, 42nd Street, The Producers and most recently Made in Dagenham. I’ve loved every show I’ve done with BROS, and made so many new friends in the process.

NODA Liaison - Matt Madeley

I joined BROS back in 2014 after recently moving to London from Sheffield. My first production was playing the titular role in Pippin. I’ve gone on to perform in many fabulous shows since then at Hampton Hill, Minack and at the prestigious Richmond Theatre. I’m always amazed at the quality of the productions, the endless talent on offer and the ever supportive and friendly nature of our membership. BROS has provided me with so many great opportunities to develop my theatre skills and maintain my passion for musical theatre. It is great to be able to contribute back to the society in which one of my primary roles is to act as the NODA (The National Operatic and Dramatic Association) liaison.

Legal Advisor - Andy Yeates

I’ve performed in over 35 musicals with BROS and more recently directed two shows in what might be described as a ‘varied career’. As a lawyer working in television and other creative industries, I hope that my experience helps in delivering the work of the Committee.

Technical Advisor - Meg Hird

I’ve been with BROS for a few years now, and while you can usually find me in blacks behind one desk or another, I have had the pleasure of being backstage with the company for three years now. My favourite shows have been Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Minack, Made in Dagenham and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying at Hampton Hill Theatre, and 42nd Street at Richmond Theatre. I’m really enjoying being on the committee and giving something back to a company that has always made me feel welcome, valued and part of the family.

Lizzie has been on the committee on and off for most of her time at BROS and has recently returned as social secretary. Socials tend to be in the White Hart pub after rehearsals, every night during show week and throughout the year we have theatre trips, Christmas and summer parties and other one off events – please see the BROS website or Chorus Lines for upcoming events.
