Our President is Gill Wade. Gill joined TOPS in 1964 and became Director in 1979, taking over from her father, Peter Holloway, who continued as Musical Director until he finally retired in 1988. In 1993, artsrichmond awarded Gill their highest honour, the Accolade, for services to musical theatre in the borough. Gill finally retired from directing TOPS productions in 2013 to move to Wiltshire with her husband Colin. Gill still takes an almost daily interest in TOPS affairs though, keeping in touch via Facebook.
We bestow the lifetime title of Vice-President on people who have made a significant contribution to TOPS over the years. Our Vice-Presidents are currently:
Along with our President and Vice-Presidents we have two rather special Honorary Patrons:
Status Quo's Rick Parfitt and Sir Tim Rice
