Meet the Cast

Nell Gwynn

by Jessica Swale

Nell Gwynn: Naomi Robertson. Fresh from playing the title role in "Puss in Boots", Naomi will be bringing all her renowned sparkle and personality to 17th century London

King Charles II: Richard Weller. It's two monarchs in a row for Richard having been a rather more diffident King Wally the Won't in Puss in Boots

Charles Hart: Ed Glass. We are delighted to welcome Ed making his debut for the Thespians

Thomas Killigrew: Rob Lloyd. A welcome return for Rob following his appearance as an (extremely) ugly sister in Cinderella last year.

Edward Kynaston: Tony Carpenter. Very well known in local theatrical circles for many fine performances, Tony is also one half of Lucky Dog Productions, purveyors of terrific Laurel & Hardy tribute shows  

Rose Gwynn: Kim Seymour. After an intense period of directing and choreography for a number of local societies, it is wonderful to have Kim back on stage.

 

Nancy: Sally Waghorn.  Sally fulfils multiple roles for the Thespians both in the public eye and behind the scenes and returns to the stage following her appearance as Babs (or was it Betty?) in panto.

Lady Castlemaine: Caroline Thompson. Having had great success in "Ladies Day" last year, Caroline will be showing an altogether different side.

Queen Catherine: Joanna Weller. Another "Ladies Day" alumni being altogether more regal on this occasion.

John Dryden: Mike Byrne. From hapless would be villain to thoughtful playwright, nothing is too much for Mike.

Ned Spiggett: Dan Wigmore. Multi talented Dan will be making his final appearance for the Thespians prior to joining Guildford School of Acting. 

Louise de Keroualle: Helen Phillips. The other half of the Babs and Betty double act in panto gets to regale us all in French. Fancy!

Old Ma Gwynn: Jude Perrett. Following a short but devastating appearance in "84 Charing Cross Road", Jude is back to shake us all up again.

William: Eric Collins. The glue that holds us all together! What would we do without him?

Director: Adrian Stent. Following his enormous success as Director of "Evita" for the Haslemere Players last year, Adrian is making his directorial debut for the Thespians in suitably bodice ripping style.
