Gareth’s other passion
28th Sep 2016
Alongside crunching numbers, supporting Liverpool FC and adding to the profits of a number of international brewing organisations, since he was just a lad GRC’s Gareth Cooper has developed an ongoing passion for Open-Air Shakespeare,or more succinctly the biennial productions of the Hillbark Players in Royden Park, Frankby.
He is now both the highly-regarded Hon. Treasurer and supremely organised and committed Company Stage Manager for this organisation, following in the footsteps of his father in the latter role. Indeed, his whole family has been involved with Hillbark-both on stage and off since the 1970s, and even thoughGareth himself hasn’t (yet) been persuaded to don doublet and hose and strut his stuff up on their grassy stage,he does make inadvertent occasional guest appearances...mostly when something’s not quite gone as originally planned!
Hillbark’s next major production, in June 2017, will be ‘Hamlet’. If you’re interested in being involved, contact Gareth or visit www.hillbarkplayers.co.uk
