Today is #WorldTheatreDay. We have been asking members of the Camberley Theatre team for their thoughts and memories on theatre.
Zoe Stanton (Front of House Officer)
How long have you worked within theatre?
I started working as a casual Front of House assistant 2 years ago, then became a full-time Front of House Officer 6 months later.
Why did you choose theatre as a career?
The theatre has always been a second home to me, I’ve performed in many amateur productions from a young age and now love working at a theatre as my job!
(Me as Tracy Turnblad with her mum Edna in my college’s production of ‘Hairspray’.)
Do you ever get the chance to go to see shows not connected with work?
Yes, I’m a big fan of the West End and like to occasionally treat myself to one of the big London shows.
What’s the best thing you’ve worked on at Camberley Theatre – why was it so good?
Frimley Lodge Live is a favourite of mine, we’ve always been lucky with the weather and everyone is always in such a good mood all weekend – it’s great to work in such a fun, chilled out environment with fabulous music and sunshine.
What’s the last thing you saw outside of Camberley Theatre?
I went to see Les Miserables last month with my friends, which I was buzzing to see because I loved the film version so much. It didn’t disappoint!
Favourite ever piece of theatre, either that you’ve seen or wished you’d seen.
If you’re a theatre fan and haven’t seen the Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre, then where have you been? I’m also secretly crossing my fingers to finally get tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child…
