Meet the Team behind Five Star Theatre
Ethan J Smith
Owner & Founder
Ethan founded the company in 2008 and he is responsible for overseeing and producing all of our shows and projects. He has directed all of our productions to date, and has even performed in some of them, too!
Ethan is a notoriously messy worker and has not yet failed to lose the company glue gun during EVERY production get-in!
Finance & Promotions Director
Sara is in charge of the slightly boring business things like bills and accounts. She is also a whizz at marketing and development.
Sara also runs the Front-of-House teams at our show venues.
Danielle is a dab-hand at most things theatrical, and is great at marketing and organising things Ethan forgets to do! Props and weird furniture are Danielle's thing...she also directs some of our shows, too!
She is easily lost, because she is usually wearing some sort of costume item!
Catarina is a Five Star all-rounder...she's the one in charge of casting letters and lots of admin stuff, as well as fun things like prop shopping and arranging photo shoots!
Catarina loves milkshakes and chocolate and is ALWAYS singing.
Production Design Assistant
Having performed in the majority of Five Star shows since 2014, and having been heavily involved in the design process for our 2017 shows, Shane was recently made our Production Design Assistant.
He is famous for juggling about 10 different projects at once (we thought Ethan loved the stress!) and making very fabulous things.
