TOPS Musical Theatre Company is managed by a hard-working and dedicated team of officers and committee members who meet regularly to plan for the company's future. Each member of the committee has specific functions, such as marketing, sponsorship, fund-raising, social and members interests. Other members are co-opted on to the committee as required to undertake specific tasks. The management team comprises:
Ian has been a member of TOPS since 1969 when he performed opposite Bonnie Langford as one of the Snow Children in Carousel. Ian has played many roles for TOPS, including Barnum, Henry Higgins, Nathan Detroit, Tevye and Fagin. He met his wife, Fiona, in a TOPS show and both sons, Jack & Daniel, are members. Ian recently finished a three year stint in a one-man comedy, Tea With The Old Queen, for which he received great reviews. Ian took over the chairmanship of TOPS in 2014.
Alan joined TOPS back in 1991 for Kiss Me Kate and although he moved out of the area he kept up his amateur stage career by joining his local society. Since moving back into the area he's re-joined TOPS and even went as far as to marry another member, Zoe. Alan's roles include the Sheriff in Whistle Down The Wind and Avram in Fiddler on the Roof. He took over the role of Vice-Chair in 2014.
Another long standing member of TOPS, Clare has the vital task of looking after our financial affairs - all while singing and dancing her way around the stage.
