Society Members

The table below hopes to list (alphabetically by surname) everyone who has ever appeared in, or helped produce, a play for BATS or STADS (excluding the 1st, 2nd and 4th productions, for which no information is available, and any play still in production), together with a brief note of what they did.

Unfortunately, it cannot include most of those who have helped out front-of-house over the years, as for a long time programmes did not mention their names – though a few of the stalwarts are listed at the foot of the page. For some amazing BATS/STADS stats, have a look also at the ‘longevity leaderboard’!

Key:

a=acted in; b=backstage in; d=director; p=producer; dp=director/producer; sm=stage manager.
Numeral indicates number of productions. So a2 = ‘acted in 2 productions’; a1, b3 = ‘acted in 1, backstage in 3 productions’.

People sometimes have two (or more!) roles in one production. Dates given are for years active in BATS. Current members in red.

All information has been compiled from actual programmes; please contact the Webmaster if you find any errors or omissions!
