Meet the Team
Steve Boden – Steve is our Managing Director. He’s in charge. Blame him – we do! Steve likes sponge pudding and custard... ALOT.
Sarah Boden – Sarah's our Business and Marketing Director, so she's quite busy doing some sums and stuff! When not at work she can be found whizzing round a golf course, practising how to add up. Sarah and Steve have two children at home - one human, one feline.
Administration and Marketing
Louise Redmond - Louise is our Head of Production and Casting. She's a great internet shopper (wonder what will arrive in the post today, Lou?) and generally very nice person to have around! Lou's a dog lover whose Husky, Skye, likes keeping warm by the radiator, and whose Collie, Pluto, loves his morning cup of tea.
Laura Taylor - Laura's our Celebrity Casting & Production Consultant. Laura lives in Ware. Where does Laura live? Laura lives in Ware. Where? Only Laura could get a panto joke out of where she lives!!
Katie Shilton –Katie's our Business and Marketing Administrator. Rather an adventurer who likes to spend her holidays riding on elephants through the jungle! Katie’s a total admin star and she runs miles every day so she’s super fit! She's a dab hand at crown green bowls and brilliant at buying cream cakes.
Ash Spall - Ash is Steve’s PA. Ash loves performing and going to Florida on holiday. He’s super organised which is absolutely fabulous. He’s also extremely tall which makes changing light bulbs in the office really nice and easy!
Charlotte Blakeman - Charlotte’s our Marketing and Communications Officer and is one of the newest members of our team. As such she’s not yet been to an Imagine Theatre Christmas party… so she doesn’t know what’s in store for her!
Hannah Roberts – (Currently on maternity leave) Hannah's one of our Administration Assistants. Hannah’s fabulous with our babes licensing and admin and tends to spend the day singing quite a lot! Just whatever you do don't creep up on and surprise her. She's a bit jumpy!!
Amy White - Amy's one of our Administration Assistants. Amy's a bit of a dancer and is about to take on a strictly come dancing challenge! Luckily for us, she's also super organised and great in the office. Thankfully her job doesn't involve her having to locate places in England on a map....
Emma Wylde - Emma's one of our Administration Assistants. A singer at heart, Emma always has a lovely smile on her face. It does, however, make us wonder what she's been up to! Emma’s also a fab performer and for Christmas 2019 stars as one of the Wicked Stepsisters in Cinderella at the Hexagon, Reading.
Georgie Boon - Georgie is one of our Administration Assistants and is Hannah’s maternity cover. Georgie’s a forensic scientist by training but can belt out a mean tune when she wants to!
Sarah Smith - Sarah’s part in our finance team. She is mummy to four gorgeous treasures and a whizz with numbers.
Jo Ely - Jo’s part of our finance team. She LOVES Christmas, and telling us stories of the mischief her cats get up to!
Operations, Stores and Technicals
David Edmunds - Dave's our Head of Operations. He makes THE most AMAZING chocolate flap jacks! Dave’s a big rugby fan, and Dad to a gorgeous brood who keep him very busy.
Callum Roberts - Callum's our Head of Music and Production. Brilliant at breaking things, Callum spends his day's working with schedules, large electrical toys and looking after all our music and much of our technical provision! He also eats lots of food and makes us all feel very hungry.
Roz Simpson - Roz is our Head of Stage Management and Props Supervisor. She's always got a big smile on her face, is super organised and loves Prosecco and motor sport.
Kevin Smith - Kev’s our Warehouse and Stores Supervisor. Nothing this boy can't do! He can usually be found buried deep in the scenic store with a screwdriver or a drill in his hand! Kev is amazing at fishing and catches THE biggest fish we've ever seen!
Dawn Outhwaite - Dawn's our Head of Wardrobe. Amazing wardrobe gal, whizz with a needle and fab designer person. She is also an ace hockey player and brilliant at picking out beautiful materials to make our costumes out of.
Aaron Gibson - Aaron’s our Wardrobe Assistant. A complete whizz with a sewing machine, he's also an amazing performer. When he's not doing applique and pleating with us at HQ, he's performing in one of our shows as the Genie of the Lamp - or for 2019, Fleshcreep in Jack and the Beanstalk at Southport Theatre!
Scenic Artistry and Props
Jay Poole - Jay's in charge of our scenic refurbishments. Does lovely things with a can of UV paint. Tends to spread glitter and sparkle wherever she walks - literally!
