In the rare event he gets any spare time, he enjoys theatre, writing music, cult science fiction, and having travelled extensively in Europe, the US and to India - has racked up a fair few air miles in the last few years. One of his best experiences was driving a husky team at the North Pole! David is delighted to be directing this production of "Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens."

Erin is delighted to be taking on the Musical Directing for ‘Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens’ with Proforça Creative.
Erin moved to London last year to pursue a career in acting and to begin studying drama at Queen Mary University of London. Her latest work in acting (the short film ‘Extra Time’ 2015) has recently become an award winning film.
Her passion for music, singing and dancing has led her to explore every part of the theatre. In 2015, she was the Assistant Musical Director for ‘The King and I’ (The Riverhead Theatre) and ‘Oliver’ (The Embassy Theatre) and she assisted with the singing coaching and acted in productions of ‘Fame’ and ‘Footloose’ (2011 & 2012 respectively) at The Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent.
Erin is extremely excited to work with this incredibly talented cast and can't wait to get started!
Emma is currently a second year student at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama studying Stage Management. She’s loved theatre from a young age and since being an Assistant Stage Manager for a show when she was 15 hasn't been able to stay away from theatre. Over the summer, she worked on a three week run of Alice in Wonderland, as Stage Manager, which received 4 star reviews. She's also worked on a selection of festivals and events after finishing a show at RCSSD where she was ASM for the summer musical.
She is also working on a production of ‘From Morning to Midnight’ as Assistant Stage Manager which is part of her course.
Emma loves baking, reading and indulging in slightly trashy history documentaries on Netflix and Channel 4. DisneyWorld has a special place in her heart (as cliché as it is) and is still holding onto the magic from her most recent trip in September.
Emma is very excited to work on this exciting show with the lovely cast and creative team!
