The Committee

It takes an entire village to put a production together. We have numerous actors who return to TIP again and again. We are also very lucky to have a dedicated and passionate group of people who can be called upon when the sound won’t work, the lights won’t turn on and we have run out of Guinness in the theatre bar ! Below is the list of this year’s committee who look after the entire season and keep us all moving.

So my brother is holding the puppets and clearly enjoying life. Still is. Like always I have to be coerced into things.
