Meet the Team behind Five Star Theatre
Ethan J Smith
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!
Danielle is a Five Star all-rounder...she 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 has even directed one of our productions!
She is easily lost, because she is usually wearing some sort of costume item!
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 is our main man when it comes to making and painting.
He is famous for juggling about 10 different projects at once (we thought Ethan loved the stress!) and making very fabulous things.
Luke joined us as Lighting Designer for 'Aladdin' in December 2016 and has worked on all of our productions since. In the spring of 2018 we made Luke an official part of the team that makes the magic happen at Five Star...
So, Luke is now officially the bloke in charge of all things technical!
Having made her mark as Mrs Twit in our 2017 and 2018 productions of 'The Twits', Laura is now the leading lady of the office!
Laura is the most organised and on-time person on the planet and she looks after our hires diary, production meetings, schedules and purse strings!
