Production Team

Laura Saltariche

Director

LADOS are delighted to welcome Laura to the team for the production of HAIRSPRAY.

Laura has been involved in the Performing Arts since she was at school, both on stage and on the technical side, which is very handy for what she has now taken on!

Laura has a degree in Drama and English from the University of Cumbria and has directed various productions including The Sound of Music, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Wizard of Oz, Grease and Hairspray.

Laura is "honoured" to have been asked to direct a LADOS show.

Angela Potter

Musical Director

Angela first joined LADOS in 1989 for the 1990 production of 'Hello Dolly' as the rehearsal pianist, and she has been a stalwart of the society ever since. In 2002 she was persuaded to take over the mantle of Musical Director, and she rapidly proved to be one of the best in the area, and we are very lucky to have her as a major part of our society. Angela has the ability to coax even the shyest of cast members to come out of their shells musically, and is always willing to put in extra hours to coax the cast to master the, often quite complex, harmonies. With many other local societies clamouring for her musical services, a full time job at Lancaster University, plus her teaching commitments, she is one very busy lady. Her little black book contains the names of some of the best local musicians, which is why she always puts together a fabulous orchestra for our productions.

Holly Brown

Choreographer

Holly made her LADOS debut as one of the children in our 2002 production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and was a dancer in "Kiss Me Kate" in 2003. Fast forward 15 years and she choreographed our 2018 production of "Kiss Me, Kate". In fact Holly has been our Choreographer since 2014 and is working her magic once again for "Jesus Christ Superstar" in 2019.

Holly throws herself 100% into any production, and always gets into the thick of the routines right alongside the cast. Even those members with 'two left feet', soon find themselves being able to join in with everyone else in Holly's slick routines. Coming from a dancing background, with a mum who is the 'Read' in the Robinson Read School of Dance, it is no wonder that Holly is such a great dancer, which she has proved in previous LADOS shows such as 'Jesus Christ, Superstar' and 'Kiss Me Kate'. Having danced practically as soon as she could walk, she won many trophies and was offered a place at the prestigious 'Millennium Dance 2000', where she stayed from 2004 to 2007. She returned to the area to get married, and is now mum to two young children, as well as working in the dance school, and she also teaches at Diddi Dance.
