Robert Appleby - Chair
Rob has been a member of the players since 2014 and was elected to the committee in early 2018. He has tried his hand at nearly all roles involved in putting on a show, having contributed to 16 PPP productions so far. He has written and directed two original PPP plays to date and has plans for more in the future. His love of prop making led to his role as resources manager in 2018 and in 2019 he was elected as a chair. He loves being involved with the players as it affords him a creative outlet as well as meeting great new people.
Ged McPhail - Treasurer
It was during a panto breakdown when Ged (who was helping with tech) noticed a $50 Shure microphone sitting in a large cardboard box along with a hammer, several other tools, some props and some costumes. He decided there and then to make it his mission to organise the PPP resources somewhat more effectively, so promptly volunteered his services as resources manager. Several years and many labelled boxes later, Ged ventured into other aspects of the PPP and has since enjoyed playing small parts in big productions whilst continuing to help out with sound and lights. In 2018 he made his debut as a co-director (with Martin Islas) in the immensely successful production of Animal Farm. Known for his reliability and trustworthiness, Ged is now burdened with the task of keeping track of PPP finances.
Paul Glew - Resources Manager
