CRAZY FOR YOU - The Company
Theo Millward - Bobby Child
Having joined MCP in 2012 in search of a challenge and a new way to relax, it is safe to say Theo is thoroughly hooked. Crazy For You is his fourth MCP production, and he plays the quirkey and loveable Bobby Child. Outside of rehearsals, Theo is Operations Director of STA, an organisation that is no stranger to the talents of Mad Cow as Alex has completed a few days training for the sales team.
Theo would like to mention his good friend Andy Kidd, who heroically endured hour after hour of audition practice whilst on holiday.
Georgie Wright - Polly Baker
Georgie is currently studying for her A-Levels at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College which she sees as a stepping stone to University or Drama School. She is rapidly learning the tools of what she hopes will be a long and happy career in musical Theatre. This is Georgie's third show with MCP and her first leading role. She feels incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such talented and enthusiastic people and learning more with The Herd than she could ever have imagined. She has enjoyed every step of the way and hopes you do too.
Robert Hinton - Bela Zangler
In the programme notes for MCP's 2012 musical, The Drowsey Chaperone, the cast members each named their favourite record. Robert's was...Crazy For You. So you won't be surprised that he's delighted that "The Cows" chose to produce it this year. The music is fantastic and it has always been a delight to be among such positive energy. After being "Man In Chair", in Drowsy and "Man NO.1" in Kiss Me Kate, he's also quite excited about having a name this time.
Michelle Hicken- Irene
Michelle joined The Herd back in 2007 after deciding she needed an outlet from being a mum. The Gym wouldn't entertain her but a show with "The Cows" sure would! Being cast as a principal in her first ever show was an in at the deep end moment but she has happily swam along ever since. She has found her love ofsinging is rubbing off on her children but sadly not her husband so a Von Trap "Quartet" is not on the cards...yet! f
Stevan Warburton - Lank
A bad amateur body builder and a worse Ukulele player, Stevan has returned to Musical Theare after an abscence of 21 years; Stevan says he got "side tracked for a while". He worked as a satge hand for Kiss Me Kate in May 2013 and loved it so much he wanted to be involved more.
Emma Buglass-Patricia Fodor
This is Emma’s second production with MCP. After a break of nearly twenty years she returned to the stage last year after hearing about MCP from her plumber! Emma loves being part of "The Herd". The dancing has been a real challenge but she has learned a huge ammount. Outside of MCP Emma is a busy housewife and mum of four. Taking the role of Patricia has been great fun although she is rather concerned how easily she has turned into an "old spinster"!
Eric Pover - Eugene Fodor
Eric joined the Cows for Kiss Me Kate and is back again. He has performed across Shropshire and Chesjhire in 118 productions including directing many NODA nominated productions. He has also sung with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. He enjoys all aspects of live theatre.
Carl Wellington - Everette Baker
Carl still holds down a day job as a Data Manager as Shropshire Council which has taken up much of his time of late. He has recently found his way back to "The Herd", after resting for a number of their latest shows, and is really looking forward to being part of Crazy For You, a show that he holds dear to his heart.
