Accrington Observer - - ACCRINGTON PEOPLE -

Name: Joyce Teas­dale. Home­town: Bax­en­den. So­ci­ety: Civic The­atre. Oswaldtwistle Are you in­volved in any pro­duc­tions at the mo­ment?: I’m play­ing Blind Pew in Trea­sure Is­land, which you can see at the Civic The­atre in Oswaldtwistle on July 27 and 28. What do you most en­joy?: The fun and friend­ship is amaz­ing, we al­ways have a laugh. Have you been in any other pro­duc­tions?: Many, most re­cently be­ing Black­ad­der with Oswaldtwistle Play­ers, play­ing Mrs Mig­gins. Who is your favourite

ac­tor and why?: Quite a few of the older ones. I loved Pa­trick Swayze and Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and Anne Hath­away – they are all amaz­ing ac­tors. If you could play any part what would it be and why?: If it were a part in a mu­si­cal it would have to be Bloody Mary in South Pa­cific, she is one sassy lady and I love her char­ac­ter and her songs. If it were a play then Mrs John­stone in Blood Broth­ers be­cause of the se­ri­ous­ness and the hu­mour. Any more in­for­ma­tion?: I have been in am­a­teur dra­mat­ics for over 30 years, tak­ing a break from act­ing to di­rect a yearly panto but came back to act­ing when I joined Oswaldtwistle Play­ers in 2015. They made me feel so wel­come that I hope to con­tinue per­form­ing with them for many years to come. Any more in­for­ma­tion?: Tick­ets for Trea­sure Is­land are £7.50 for adults and £5 for chil­dren avail­able from www.civi­carts­cen­ or 01254 398319.
