Meet The Team
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!

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.
A member of 30 years and in that time involved with back stage, lighting, managing the bar and currently co running the box office at Sapphire Estate Agents. Andrew has appeared in plays and pantomime and has directed a number of shows for the society.

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!
Jenny has been part of the Quince players since she was eight years old when

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)
