Hayley is pleased to be Vice – Chair for BMOS, having been a member of the society since she was 16. A keen performer, some of Hayley’s most memorable roles include Maria in ‘West Side Story’, Deloris in ‘Sister Act’ and Rita in ‘Made in Dagenham.’ Hayley graduated with a degree in Music Theatre in 2014 and loves managing a full - time job with the many performance opportunities BMOS provides.

Richard loves all types of theatre but especially Musicals. As a performer, his singing repertoire consists entirely of rugby songs having spent far too many years in muddy fields chasing a funny shaped ball. He now gets his exercise on the golf course and was delighted to be Men’s Captain at Oakland Park in 2016 raising over £8k for charity. Richards family have been following BMOS since daughter Katie first joined more than 15 years ago and Richard is now looking forward to playing a more active role by putting his 30 years’ experience as a Qualified Accountant to good use as Treasurer.
Wendy joined BMOS for the Sound of Music production 8 years ago where she played a nun. She joined mostly for her daughter, who was then 4 and too young to take part. Together, the following year, they did Annie. She’s also been in Sweet Charity, Made in Dagenham, Sweeney Todd and numerous compilation shows. Wendy joined the committee this year in order to bring local knowledge to the team and to keep the average age up!
Emma is a national award winning children's entertainer and choreographer originally from Kent. She joined BMOS in 2018, playing Anita in West Side Story, after finding out about auditions by chance. Emma trained at The National Youth Theatre & The London Theatre School, and she has almost a decade of experience working in theatre management. Emma can never be seen without a snack in her hand and once appeared on The Royal Variety Show as a cardboard cutout.
Starting at The Young Theatre, Tom has been part of the local acting community for nearly half his life. A relatively new addition to BMOS, his most recent role was in Kiss Me Kate but he is keen to be an active member in the society and is keen to see BMOS go from strength to strength bringing high quality theatre to the local area.
Tom first joined BMOS in February 2017 and has been actively involved in the running of it ever since. A member of many other local groups, as well as serving on their committees, when Tom gets a free moment he can usually be found watching The Muppet Show or Match of the Day. On rehearsal nights, he can be found walking through doors at pace looking harassed and important.
