MEET OUR COMMITTEE

Anna2.jpg

CHAIR

Anna Foran

Part of the ‘Housebound’ team that’s made it to the 2022 British Finals of the One-Act Play Festival, Anna has certainly proved herself to be a capable and versatile member of FADS. From leaping around in panto to lugging sets across Orkney and winning trophies with SCDA, she's a real asset to the club. For this year, she’s stepping up from Treasurer to Chair, and we're confident her leadership skills will prove to be just as good as her acting!

SECRETARY

Sheila Fraser

Sheila is truly the heart of FADS, having been involved ever since she co-founded 'Fintry Theatre Club' in 1977. An excellent performer on stage, Sheila is always on hand to help behind the scenes too - from prompting to sewing costumes and even pouring the tea :) She has taken the helm of the FADS Committee on numerous occasions and we're delighted to have her in the Secretary's seat this year.

TREASURER

Gerry Eckersley

Gerry has acted, sung and danced her way through numerous FADS productions since the mid-‘90s, many of which have also featured her children. Musicals are her passion and she has also taken part in the SCDA festival several times, which has resulted in two trips to the Scottish finals. Always keen to make sure we have fun in FADS, Gerry loves trying new things and welcomes any dramatic challenge!

Tony.JPG

MEMBER

Tony Flisch

Tony has filled pretty much every role in FADS at one time or another! He's chaired, built sets, assembled and operated lighting and sound systems, photographed and videoed our productions, acted, directed, produced..... He's travelled with productions, hosted social events, run websites and, as if FADS didn't keep him busy enough, he's also chaired the SCDA. What he doesn't know about community drama probably isn't worth knowing. This year, he is supporting, Sheila, in the more technical aspects of her role.

Cindy Gray.JPG

MEMBER

Cindy Gray

As an actress and director, Cindy has been a valuable member of FADS for many years. Her daughters, Ella and Maddie have also taken part in our productions, and Teaga her Jack Russell can often be found keeping a careful eye on rehearsals. Having steered the ship as our Chair from 2018 to 2020, this year Cindy is assisting Gerry with the Treasurer role.

MEMBER

Barbara McLeod

Barbara has enormously enjoyed her many years in FADS, during which she’s worn plenty of different hats - choreographer, director, prompt, backstage and front of house. “Here’s wishing our great club a happy, successful and healthy coming season!”

Lorna for FADSWeb-1b.jpg

MEMBER

Lorna Flisch

Lorna has been involved in virtually every area of FADS over many years - from acting and directing to prompting and front of house - but she’s probably best known for her wonderful set design, prop creation and artistic skills. Together with Tony, Lorna has travelled around the UK supporting FADS’ competitive drama productions, and her dedication to keeping the ‘back of house’ organised is second to none. If you want to know where anything is, ask Lorna!

MEMBER

Margo Campbell

Margo has very much enjoyed participating in several recent productions and appreciated working with such a lovely group of people. With retirement looming, she’s hoping to be even more involved with the club going forward – in particular the newly-formed FADS singing group, which has been so much fun!  If you’re considering joining FADS, Margo would thoroughly recommend doing so and guarantee you a warm welcome 😊
