Meet The Team

Well, here we are, your committee! We’re here to make sure the society runs smoothly, that our shows are successful and we all have a good time pursuing our (sometimes crazy!) hobby! So, let’s introduce ourselves….

Note that the photos are not necessarily a true likeness – until the committee members send their mugshots to the website editor!

Vicki Gavin

E-mail Vicki Gavin

Vicki is delighted to be back as chairman for the next couple of years.  With a total of 18 years as both treasurer and chairman previously, Vicki is familiar with how everything runs whilst being mindful of the need for new ideas.

Pamela Depledge

E-mail Pamela Depledge

Pamela joined the Players in 1965 for Die Fledermaus. She was then asked to become the librarian and some while later, during an after-rehearsal drink at the pub (!), Doreen (Wylde) asked Pamela if she would take on the role of Secretary. This involves various responsibilities and Pamela is always available to answer queries or pass them on to the appropriate member of the team.

Mike Byrne

E-mail Mike Byrne

Mike has been a member of the Players now for almost 12 years and during that time has been on the committee twice before, firstly heading up the social team and then supporting Vicki as deputy chairman. As Treasurer Mike gets the opportunity to play with spreadsheets in his spare time in addition to doing it at work….happy days!!

Verity Foster

Programme Advertising & Show Selection Sub-Committee
E-mail Verity Foster

Verity joined the Players in 2004 and has been hooked ever since, with her favourite shows including Barnham, Titanic and Evita. The environment in rehearsals, backstage and during performances is fun, friendly and exciting – Verity recommends it to everyone! Verity has been part of the committee for a couple of years and loves being part of the show-selection committee – it’s not as straight forward or simple as you might think, if you have any suggestions please let us know!

Mary-Lou Knox

E-mail Mary-Lou Knox

Mary-Lou is the custodian of our extensive wardrobe which is stored in the Studio. We are fortunate to have such a marvellous wardrobe which enables us to costume the majority of our own shows but also gives us the opportunity to hire our things out to other societies and to the public. So if you want to hire an outfit for your show, cruise, special birthday party or celebration – look no further than our own Haslemere Players wardrobe. Just email Mary-Lou to book an appointment. Mary-Lou would also be delighted to hear from you if you would like to be involved with the wardrobe. For further details click here.

E-mail Hannah Lucas

Hannah is excited to be part of the committee and to be leading the way with all things social media and marketing. After having performed with the Haslemere Players as a child, she loves being back on stage with the Players at Haslemere Hall once again! Outside of treading the boards, Hannah enjoys hanging out with her family and running her very own YouTube channel. If you have any fun ideas for the Haslemere Player’s social media channels then please do get in touch!
