In the Spotlight: Chris Foyer
How long have you been a Loft member?
I became a member in 1969.
How many Loft productions have you been involved with?
I’m not sure but I have ‘propped’ 15 shows including the one I’m working on now.
What has been your principal area of involvement so far?
Mostly Front of House. I first became involved when I started making costumes (at home) in about 1974. David Ellis did a sketch and I was given the material and measurements. I joined the box office team in the mid 1980s, and later became a volunteer in the bar.
Are you involved with other theatre groups/societies?
No, only the Loft.
Which is your favourite of the Loft shows you’ve worked on so far?
Peter Pan; it was great fun and there were lots of props to make.
Have you experienced any backstage or onstage disasters?
No – touch wood!
Have you had any form of theatre training?
What do you do for a living?
Besides theatre, what are your main pastimes?
I belong to a book group and a fine arts society. I make jewellery, I like cooking, walking and looking after my grandchildren.
What would be your dream show to be involved with at the Loft?
One without blood!
