Paul has been a member of the Leeds Gilbert & Sullivan society since 2007 when he crewed on their production of The Gondoliers. He was a regular crew member then up until 2011 when he stage managed their production of The Yeomen of the Guard and has continued to stage manage for them since then.
He finds it hard work but extremely rewarding and finds the society to be friendly and full of laughter. He enjoys the whole of the production process but particular favourites are set building, the get-in (getting onto the stage and building the set properly for the first time) and the get-out (where the set is taken down and the stage is bare again ready for the next show). The best part though is the audience reaction when they’ve obviously enjoyed the show.
