Welcome to my world of non-professional theatre in Europe.

I have been the lighting guy for all of these shows and enjoyed every minute of it.  I have had way too much fun creating spaces for characters to inhabit. A surreal bedroom or a 1930’s Jazz Club, an imagined beach or a London underground train. They are all possible with a bit of “light” thought. You don’t have to be on-stage to get that showbiz buzz!

I am currently looking for pictures of shows that I can put up here without upsetting any copyrights.

Young Frankenstein

A Pirate Productions production
Written by Mel Brooks
Directed by Neil Johnson

To be performed 8th to 11th November 2018 at the Kinneksbond, Mamer.

That’s Fronkensteen – my name, it’s pronounced FRONKENSTEEN!

Mel Brooks’ riotously funny send-up of 1930s horror films gets a musical version, complete with side-splitting jokes, hilarious songs and a tap-dancing monster!

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Auteursbureau ALMO bvba, on behalf of Music Theatre International Europe

In English – Duration: 180 ‘ (including intermission)

Please note that some scenes may be unsuitable for younger children. Parental discretion advised for children under 14 years of age.

Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood

An English Comedy Club production.
Directed by Andy Fisk

To be performed on the 18th to 20th January 2019 at the Centre Culturel d’Auderghem.

The journey to Sherwood Forest has begun. ECC are proud to present Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood which will be performed in Auderghem Cultural Centre from January 18-20, 2019. Auditions for the show will be held in the Warehouse on Sunday June 10th and Saturday June 16th from 10.30 am until 12.30 pm. There will be a number of principal roles and a chorus of around 20, plus a small chorus of mice as traditional.

    Principal roles are:

  • Robin Hood: Female, solo singing role.
  • Marian: Female, solo singing role.
  • Nursy Nanny Nellie: Male (Dame), solo singing role.
  • Alan-a-Dale: M/F (Comic), some singing.
  • Fairy Bluebell: Female, no singing.
  • Sheriff of Nottingham: Male (baddy), solo singing role.
  • Guy of Gisbourne: Male (baddy), no singing.
  • Babe 1: M/F, young role, no singing.
  • Babe 2: M/F, young role, no singing.
  • Merry Men: M/F, some singing.

There will also be a number of smaller parts for young and old. We also need back-stage help, so if you’re interested in being part of the panto, but not acting, we’d love to hear from you! We need help to make costumes and props before the show, and then back stage help (stage crew, props, child-minding, front of house, make-up and hair) during the show.

The Story So Far

Having been left out in the cold by my previous service provider, I have taken the opportunity to ‘rebuild’ my hobby site.

So now I’m using WordPress and this site is being hosted by OVH.com.

I thoroughly recommend them both.

Meanwhile, stuff keeps getting added here as I transfer my archives to their new home.  Be patient young Padawan.

While you are waiting for me to catch up, you can see my shows on the Association of Lighting Designers website –> Here

About Me

A few pages of random nonsense.

Living, working and playing in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, you will often find me planning, rigging and running lighting for the many and varied non-professional theatre groups in Luxembourg, Europe and the UK!

I often forget to take photographs of these wonderful shows, so if you have any pictures that you would be willing to share, please let me know.

These pages offer a small (but perfectly formed) insight into my life.
