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.

Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood

An English Comedy Club production.
Directed by Andy Fisk

Performed on the 18th to 20th January 2019 at the Centre Culturel d’Auderghem.

Director Andy Fisk and principal writer and choreographer Josephine Draycott put even more emphasis on the singing and dancing this year. Katherine Cox, our feisty Maid Marian, set the tone with a rousing rendition of Good Morning Nottingham, supported by the chorus in a carefully choreographed dance. Josephine Draycott in the title role of Robin Hood, gave another strong vocal (and physical) performance. Last year’s principal boy Hannah Riley (the Prince in Snow White) didn’t get to sing this year, but put on such a fabulous performance as the front half of the lovely panto horse Brown Booty that the horse became the kids’ favourite character. She was only half the story of course – of equal
importance was the horse’s rear end played very gamely – and with an impressively flexible back – by Cat Harris, who ate her way through a large apple under her costume for every 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.
