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 - 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.

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!

Deputy Chair - Jacob Botha

I have been a fan of BROS for many years, but only joined the society in 2018 to play Mike in High Society at Richmond Theatre. I was really impressed with the people, the quality of the work and the leadership of a society with such an amazing history. I got cast in It Shoulda Been You, but the pandemic hit 2 weeks before opening night which meant that my second show with BROS was only in theory! 

I have been involved with many other theatre societies in South West London and have had the opportunity to work with many passionate people over the years. I look forward to playing a small part in the history of BROS. By day I work on the business side of the Healthcare industry.

Treasurer - Niv Khullar (née Sharma)

I’ve recently joined BROS TC as Treasurer for the Committee in 2019. Whilst my theatre experience only spreads as far as being an audience member, I am thoroughly looking forward to supporting the talented individuals at BROS.

Secretary and NODA Liason - Becky Tarry

I have been a member of BROS since 2017 and was lucky enough for my debut with the society to be on the beautiful Richmond Theatre stage. My second show was due to be It Shoulda Been You at Hampton Hill Theatre in March 2020, but unfortunately with a week to go we went into lockdown. BROS is such a fantastic company to be a part of and I can’t wait to get back into a theatre with this wonderful group of people.

Social & Event Secretary - Lizzie Brignall

I joined BROS way back in 1996 for a shimmering production of Chicago. Other favourite shows include the brilliant comedy It Shoulda Been You (which we hope to perform as soon as we can!); Hello Dolly; Anything Goes; Flora the Red Menace; I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change; When Midnight Strikes; and Made in Dagenham. I also enjoy being Social Secretary for the Society and have made many wonderful life long friends. Thank you BROS!

Marketing Secretary - Faye Brann

I first joined BROS in 2003 for a gloriously sunny Minack production of Calamity Jane and knew I’d found my theatre ‘home’.  After ten years out while living in Dubai, I returned to my BROS family in 2018 and have appeared in A Class Act, High Society and most recently, as ‘Beggarwoman’ in Sweeney Todd, the most fun and challenging role in a production I’m really proud to have been part of. The best thing about coming back to BROS, though, has been reuniting with old friends and making so many new ones too. They really are a lovely bunch!

Membership and BROS TC Academy Secretary - Cath Bryant

Since joining BROS in 2017, I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in shows in Richmond Theatre, Hampton Hill and the wonderful Minack in Cornwall; which I would definitely recommend as a truly amazing experience (and one of the best weeks ever)! BROS is a really welcoming society, and I look forward to creating lots more memories and friendships in the years ahead.

Website Editor - Tom Nunan

Most people discover themselves abroad on their gap years. On mine in 2017, I discovered BROS on the cliffs at Porthcurno, and have been hooked ever since. They were so welcoming during Dirty Rotten Scoundrels that I stuck around to help with rehearsals for Made In Dagenham, before leaving for university six weeks before opening night. Despite me living over fifty miles away during show week, the Made in Dagenham team were even kind enough to give me my first BROS speaking role: the star-studded heights of The Voice of the Tannoy.

After a three year hiatus (there was the small matter of getting a degree), I am back with a vengeance and looking forward to more BROS shows in the future!

BROS is a great company with a great reputation, as well as being lots of fun, and it has has given me many of my closest lifelong friends. Do come and get involved!

Archivist - Wes Henderson Roe

Joined in 1989. Much of my life revolves around theatre – musical theatre in particular. I first worked with BROS as Stage Manager for Trial by Jury and HMS Pinafore. If I could play any part I’d be Jacob in La Cage Aux Folles.
