Portrait, Palace Theatre, Westcliff, Essex.
Peter, Chairman of The Palace Theatre Club

Peter has been the chairman of the Palace Theatre Club for almost 14 years. The Club was formed in 1957 and exists to support and promote the theatre; currently it has 425 members but is still growing. They fund raise and hold regular social events and trips to other theatres. I photographed Peter in the foyer of the Palace at one of their regular Saturday morning social meetings.

David, Archivist

David is the Palace Theatre Club's archivist. He has been voluntarily cataloging and sorting various programmes, photographs, posters and scrapbooks, most of which have been acquired through donations. Pride of place is the earliest programme, for 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood', performed in January 1920. The  club own the artefacts but the Palace Theatre's lessee, HQ Theatres, has provided a room at the theatre for the collection. I photographed David in the archive, which in fact was previously a Gents toilet which was converted to an office in the late 1970s. Whilst David catalogues items in the archive, other volunteers in the next room are busy scanning every page of every programme so that the collection can be digitised.

Michael, Technician

Michael is responsible for "teching shows" in the Dixon Studio (a secondary stage at the Palace) - this includes building sets and programming the sound and lights. He is also the 'operator' during shows there. The Dixon Studio opened in September 1982, and was originally designed as a rehearsal stage, but also staged cabaret, small-scale touring theatre, puppets and dance. Michael says that late 2012 was the busiest period the Dixon has ever had. About 90% of local amateur dramatic groups have performed here, and this is on the increase since the local Empire Theatre closed down. I photographed Michael on the stage in the Dixon, midway through a run of Edinburgh Festival comedy previews.
