Mike Turner

I joined the Society in 1960. My first acting role was a 'walk on' part as a junior doctor with no lines to learn. Later on I took leading roles. These days I look for very small roles in plays as I find learning lines has become not so easy as it used to be.

I have written three pantomines. Dick Whittington, Puss in Boots and Cinderella, which have all been staged at Ombersley.

I enjoy Pantomine as I think they are fun to do. They are hard work to rehearse but very rewarding on performance n ights.

I conceived and directed our 21st Birthday minstral show, but these days we would not be able to put this on stage as it involves the men having to 'black up!'.

I co-directed our latest panto 'Mother Goose' for January 2013.
