Treasurer: Graham Scott
Graham was a founder member of Mdg way back in 1981. He has been interested in amateur dramatics since school days.

As well as his involvement with plays he has been a committee member for many years and has taken on the role of Treasurer for the second time. He is also responsible for this web site, as well as some aspects of our social media presence.

He has written pantomime scripts, produced shows, acted, undertaken lighting design, sound design and stage management for the pantomime group and has also lit past productions for Sandiway Players. When not involved in amateur theatre, Mike’s other interests include playing league tennis, drumming in his party band and spending time with his two young grandsons.
