Proon Productions – who we are.
Hello, we are Ellis and Rebecca, artistic directors and your entertainment hosts here at Stratford Play House. We look forward to welcoming you here at some point soon. Overleaf, you will get to read Phil’s Page. Most of you who have technical requirements will meet him. You may even also meet Yogi the Stratford Play Hound. He was planning to write a page as well but he’s in a meeting at the moment and is therefore too busy. You can follow him on Twitter though this link.
So – After studies and training and whatnot, we both worked in drama, variety and pantomime before becoming Proon Productions, an entertainment and theatre company and our somewhat mischievous humour has provided entertainments for theatre audiences, museums, cruise ships, and theme parks. We make no distinction between the little teeny ones and the old and wrinkly ones. As humour is a great way of bringing people of all ages together, Proon Productions’ motto is: “If you’re in the room, you’re in the show”. Similarly, as Play House Operators, it will be “if you’re a member of the community, you’re part of the Play House!
Phil Tiso is Production Manager at Proon Productions. He is senior technician at Machynlleth Comedy Festival, and worked at Stafford Gatehouse in a similar capacity. He is former Scarehouse Entertainment Support Technician at Alton Towers, and was Light and Sound Technician at Gifford’s Circus. He also moves chairs.
We asked Phil to say a few words and he said “a few words”.
If you have any technical queries of your own, do write to Phil and let him know, and he will answer them in future issues on this page and do his best to answer them in his own inimitable way.
