Our Stories : Frank Barker

“I joined the orpen players just under 4 years ago – the main reason was that although I had for about 12 years done little bits a pieces for other groups none of them did Panto and that’s what I really wanted to try.

Having joined the group I realised how lucky I had been – the group not only do a brilliant panto that gives opportunities for people of all ages and abilities but also there is the chance to help with  lighting, sound, make up, costumes, front of house and a host of other bits- so there is the chance to try your hand at whatever you want. The great thing is the team work- it doesn’t matter if its the Orpen players or a West End production every body has to work together for there to be a show and everybody has an important role to play – and that’s really just not on the stage.”
