Trevor as Malvolio in Twelfth Night (1993)
We're sorry to report the death of Trevor Williams, who passed away on December 2nd. He was a member of the Company for 40 years, joining in about 1960. He served as the Theatre Company Chairman, and was a Board member of Tavistock Repertory Guarantors Ltd for many years.
As an actor, he appeared in over 20 shows, mainly Shakespeare and other classical drama. He, with his wife Kirsten, were also instrumental in arranging our early visits to Paris with the Tower's annual open-air Shakespeare productions in the Bois de Boulogne.
Our condolences to Kirsten and to his family. The funeral will be on Thursday December 15th - contact the Tower office for further details.
APPOINTMENT OF ASSISTANT ARTISTIC DIRECTORS
The Tower is pleased to announce the appointment of three new Assistant Artistic Directors (AADs) to join the Artistic Team. Under a new structure for the team, each AAD will have a responsibility for a specific area of Artistic Policy as well as being responsible for helping shape overall artistic policy.
The new Assistant Artistic Directors are :
Jacqui Marchant-Adams, with responsibility for co-ordination with the Publicity Team and to assist with securing rights.
Rob Ellis, with responsibility for new community and members engagement and co-ordination with the Technical Team.
Louise Bakker, with responsibility for co-ordinating the Assistant Director scheme.
Dan Uzstan will remain as an AAD with principal responsibility for securing rights.
More information about each of the team is here.
The purpose of the new roles is to have stronger lines of engagement between the Artistic Team and the Publicity and Technical Teams.
The Artistic Team is looking forward to working together with the Publicity Team to develop areas such as a broader Schools programme. Jacqui Marchant-Adams will take the lead on this for the Artistic Team.
The Artistic Team is also looking at ways to try to engage groups and communities in and around London to increase and broaden our membership. Rob Ellis will take the lead on this for the Artistic Team.
We will also aim to grow our base of potential Directors with the Assistant Directors scheme. Louise Bakker, working closely with established Tower directors, will take the lead on this aspect of artistic policy.
These are exciting times and we believe this a very strong team to take the Tower Theatre artistic policy forward in the next few years and build on the excellent work of the last few years.
If you have any questions concerning artistic policy please feel free to contact the Artistic Director, Martin Mulgrew or speak to a member of the team.
