Who's who in Coventry's A View from the Bridge community cast

Who's who in Coventry's A View from the Bridge community cast

Tuesday, 7 April 2015

This week A View from the Bridge is in Coventry, playing the Belgrade Theatre from 8 to 11 April. Check out who's taking to the stage as members of this week's ensemble with our look at Coventry's community cast. 

A View from the Bridge ensemble cast (Belgrade Theatre)

A View from the Bridge opens at its penultimate stop this week, the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry! Each stop of the tour, the show is joined by people from the local area as part of the ensemble cast. So let's introduce you to those joining us at the Belgrade. We asked them for interesting and unique facts about themselves and they didn't disappoint..! 

  • Amritpal Dhillon loves playing football; and loves acting and video games.  He is currently studying Business Level 3
  • Juliet Grundy loves travelling:  amongst other places, in the last five years she has been to Vanuatu in the South Pacific (where the last recorded act of cannibalism took place!) and Colombia in South America. 
  • Lynda Lewis once got into a tangle while out skiing on her own, getting her skis stuck in a small stream! Unable to get out, she was rescued by three nine year old girls skiing back from school.  After untangling her, they politely wished her a happy holiday in perfect English before falling over giggling. 
  • Chris Old was born in Birmingham. Most of his schooling was in Khartoum, Sudan, before finishing in Birmingham and then a degree from University of Sussex
  • Jack Richardson is the son of the Company Stage Manager for the show!
  • Alice Robertson was asked for her first autograph when she was nine! As a member of the children’s choir of Bill Kenwright’s Joseph, she came out of the Belgrade Theatre's stage door to a stranger asking her for her autograph.  The trouble was, she had absolutely no idea what an autograph was! So she just scribbled her name, followed by a smiley face.
  • Eliott Sheppard can only feel with the right side of his body, and this year he is producing a show for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
  • Alex Woolley can fold his tongue into a 3 leaf clover shape
