Allison Sharpe

Allison Sharpe

Hon. Secretary

It’s the diversity of the Quince Players that Allison finds so appealing and interesting.

Allison has acted on the Cordes Hall stage since 1982.  She has played a variety of comedic and dramatic roles over the years.  QPs have given Allison the chance to direct a total of 7 productions, stage manage, learn about stage lighting and sound, try her hand at set design and painting, welcome audiences front of house and be taught theatrical make-up skills, comedic trickery and sword fighting.

Allison has been Hon. Secretary since 2000 and has found her former roles as Chairman of the Society and committee member extremely useful and has applied much of what she has learnt to running her own business – although she hasn’t yet put sword fighting into professional practice!

Victoria Lander

Victoria Lander

Hon. Treasurer

I’m Victoria Lander, but you can call me Toria if you like. I’m the current Hon. Treasurer for the Quince Players – which basically means I am money monitor. I consider myself an active member: since joining at the open evening of The Wind in the Willows in January 2014, I’ve been involved in most productions, be it on stage or spending an evening behind the bar. There’s so much to get involved with, so many people to meet and fun to be had.

Andrew Darling

Sarah Matthews

Sarah Matthews

Vice Chairman

Sarah has been a member of the Quince Players since the early 1980’s.  Appropriately, her association with the society began when she ran the bar for the local pub, The Three Jays.  Coerced from behind the bar by Jimmy Matthews, she then became a more active member and has now been just about everywhere; in every position!  Sarah is very happy to have benefitted in so many ways from the Quince Players and has done her bit to ensure the future of the society by providing three fully active daughters!

Mark Holliday

Mark Holliday

Member

I have been a member of the Quince players since 1990 and during that time
have appeared in many plays and pantomimes. I have always been heartened by
the enthusiasm and dedication of the members over that time and their desire
to produce the best quality entertainment possible. I’ve also been lucky
enough to be able to indulge my love of directing. Working with some really
talented people over the years, it has been a pleasure to have been involved
in some great theatre. My daily work involves bringing to life situations in
business environments. Using professional actors to help people improve their
management skills and bring their learning to life. A great crossover between
work and pleasure.

Molly Matthews

Molly Matthews

Member

Molly graduated from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in June 2016 and is thrilled that she is able to join the Quince Players Committee and give her the opportunity to keep up her passion for drama and live Theatre.  Having participated in numerous shows and pantomimes for The Quince Players in Sunninghill, making her debut performance when she was just 5 years old as the Fairy Godmother’s assistant in ‘Dick Whittington the Panto’ (year 2000) who ironically got hit with stage fright and then forgot to fly! (“Fly Molly Fly” being shouted from the lighting box where Molly’s Mum was sat still haunts her to this day) Since her first ever performance, Molly’s love for Theatre has grown and she likes to think her stage fright isn’t as bad as it was either! Performances for the Quince Players include: Ding Dong the Tap Dancing Reindeer (Snow Queen the Pantomime, 2010) Max The Dog (Cinderella the Pantomime, 2012) Daisy the Cow (Robin Hood The Panto, 2016) and Edna the Eco fairy (Jack and the Beanstalk the Pantomime,2017)
