What a wealth of knowledge and experience our Vice-Presidents have. If you combined their years of dedication to this company, it would be over two hundred years. We are privileged to have such giants to guide us.
Iain is now celebrating his 40th year in the Am Dram world – I know he doesn’t look old enough! Iain has a long association with HHTheatreCo having previously been a member in the 1980’s and early 1990’s, Iain is delighted to have been elected Chair of HHTheatreCo and looks forward to starting a new chapter following the recent challenges.
We are very fortunate to have lured Frances into the fold as she was planning on moving to the South West. We are delighted to have her join our management team. She is sure to bring her creative flair, which we usually see in her costumes on stage, to good use.
Tim’s association with HHTheatreCo commenced in the mid- 80’s when his wife Veronica joined. Since then he has been involved in many and varied aspects from Front of House, table waiting, costume collections, sandwich preparation, fund raising, backstage work, producer of a play and even small parts in occasional productions. He wants to see HHTheatreCo continue to prosper for more generations to come.
Having recently moved to Hemel Hempstead, Linda was keen to continue her favourite lifetime hobby and was delighted to discover this amazing little theatre. Since joining, Linda has been involved in productions both on and off stage. She is very much enjoying her new role, and is looking forward to welcoming new members as well as keeping in touch with our longer-standing members.
Lynda first joined HHTheatreCo in 1984 so considers herself to be an old-timer in terms of membership longevity. Lynda has played a number of acting roles in HHTheatreCo, productions and has also fulfilled backstage roles from director and producer to props and prompt.

Barry may be new to our little company, but he's no stranger to theatre, having been involved in running multiple theatre companies over the years. We're excited to have his fresh perspective on board.
Zoe grew up in Hemel Hempstead and was super surprised when she heard about the Playhouse in her adult years, as she would have loved it as a child. She became a member of HHTheatreCo a couple of years ago and has worked both on stage and behind the scenes. She is excited to get started in her new role with HHTheatreCo.
