NAME: Sarah Hall
CHARACTER: Navigational Officer
BY DAY I.....work in admin.
BY NIGHT I.....do wedmin as my sister is getting married a few week’s before the show and I’ve been organising her hen party and helping out with wedding prep. I also sing in a choir, play Dungeons and Dragons and have a penchant for board games.
FAVOURITE SONG FROM THE SHOW AND WHY? Monster Mash, it’s just so catchy!
PAST SHOWS INCLUDE: West Side Story, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Aladdin, Sing On, Medea, A Birthday Party, The King of Spain’s Treasure and The Ugly Duckling are some of the highlights.
FAVOURITE/MOST MEMORABLE/EMBARRASSING MOMENT STAGE: Some of my most memorable moments on stage are: 1) Being swung around in a trolley in Sparklespark while playing the character of Russell and praying I didn’t go flying off the stage. 2) Playing Nora in a scene from A Doll’s House when Torvald got the date wrong in his line, therefore making the whole scene irrelevant. He tried to recover it and we both spent the rest of the scene trying not to burst out laughing. 3) Having to scream hysterically for longer than 10 seconds in The Ugly Duckling while the rest of the cast tried not to dissolve into fits of giggles like they did everytime we rehearsed it. 4) Playing the accompaniment on stage to ’On My Own’ (from Les Mis) on the flute as the character of Lesser Vizzir/Mini Me (otherwise known as Iago) in Aladdin. Also in the same show, I had the same long speech to announce the entrance of the Grand Vizzir (otherwise known as Jafar) EVERY time he entered. These are my favourite lines from a show so far and a speech which I still remember word for word 18 years later.
