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.

Ash Baker

General Secretary

Ashley has had loads of committee experience over the years, but he doesn’t want to bore you with all that now. A relative newbie at HHTheatreCo, he’s keen to put passion into his role, although he’s mainly hoping that he doesn’t get thrown out for being a northerner.

Tim Thompson

Company Treasurer

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.

Mariam Gaballa-Gill

Marketing & PR Manager

Mariam is a newcomer to this management business, and marketing too for that matter. She’s hoping that her many years of theatrical experience, as well as some common sense, will help her figure things out.

John Eames

Technical Manager

John is no stranger to theatre having been involved in over 25 new builds, extensions or refurbishments of West End theatres before his retirement as a Electrical Engineer in 2011.  He now works hard keeping the Playhouse up to spec.

Zoe Mackie

Bar Manager

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,

Veronica Thompson

Services Manager

Veronica would like to know if you would like some cake or perhaps some tea. When she is not slaving away in the kitchen, Veronica is organising all the fun activities that happen at the theatre and generally being mum.

Patricia Delaney and Martyn Cash

Hall Managers

You’ve probably seen Trish and Martyn looking very smart and busy working at the bar, or Front of House during a performance.  They are always on hand to help when needed, and when not serving out front, they’re usually backstage supporting the Props and Stage Crews.

Laura-Anne Davis 

Hall Bookings Manager

Laura-Anne has been part of the playhouse for five years now. You’ll usually find her performing on
stage and she has also choreographed a show here.  She has been part of the artistic committee for
a while but has decided to go for a change in role and become Bookings Manager.  She is very
excited to take on this role because she is a massive control freak and loves everything to be
organised, which of course will definitely come in handy when taking bookings.
