NAME: Richard Hall
CHARACTER: Captain Tempest
BY DAY I..... run a business specialising in data and application integration. This means (because nobody ever seems to know) I spend my days playing with, sharing, moving, reshaping, analysing, inferring from.... other people's data.
BY NIGHT I.....have recently spent my time banging my head against anything solid in frustration at the RTTFP words not going in. However this approach may change soon as all it seems to have achieved is for the already obfuscated dialogue to become even more unintelligible.
FAVOURITE SONG FROM THE SHOW AND WHY? Albatross. Because it is Fleetwood Mac. However I think The Chain might have been a better Mac song to shoehorn into the score.
PAST SHOWS INCLUDE: Oklahoma, West Side Story, Chess, Little Shop of Horrors, Jesus Christ Superstar, Big and A Slice of Saturday Night are some of my favourites.
FAVOURITE/MOST MEMORABLE/EMBARRASSING MOMENT STAGE: My favourite moment on stage was playing Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar. I loved the whole thing. I had a much higher vocal range then, so couldn't do it again. My most memorable moment on stage was receiving the "baked bean award" with Woking Youth Theatre for accidentally replacing the word "call" with "come", when delivering the line "I shall call upon you again later" in Jane Eyre. The most embarrassing moment on stage has to be stripping to a thong in Girls Night Out. I'm still scarred by that.....as I imagine are many of the audience members.
