Name: Sid Smith. Home town: Mac­cles­field. How long have you been with the Ma­jes­tic? From man to boy – at least 10 years. How did you get in­volved? I was spot­ted busk­ing in the Grosvenor Cen­tre, just like Kate Moss and her mod­el­ling ca­reer..! Have you been in any other pro­duc­tions? Gen­er­ally I am the com­edy part – the fool – in the pan­tos, ap­par­ently I am a nat­u­ral. Who is your favourite ac­tor and why? Be­side all my fel­low ac­tors in ‘Witches’ I loved the late Robin Wil­liams, such a tal­ent. If you could play any part what would it be and why? Jean Val­jean (Les Mis­er­ables), a dream part for both the songs and act­ing. The next pro­duc­tion of the Ma­jes­tic The­atre Group is The Witches of East­wick, Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 6 – Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 11 at 7.15pm at the MADS The­atre, Lord Street, Mac­cles­field. Tick­ets are avail­able on 07875 149943 or www.tick­et­source.co. uk/mmtg or www. mmtg.co.uk.
