NEWS FROM TINA (article first published : 1999-10-18)

Actress Tina Swain, who appeared in production such as Educating Rita and Caught In The Act and all the Christmas shows for the Kloof Arts and Drama Society (KADS) is now living in St Albans in England and working as client manager for a corporate hospitality company,

She is a member of the 70 year-old local amateur company called the Company of Ten, which saw the start of the theatrical career of Mike Newell of Four Weddings and a Funeral fame. “We have our own theatre, with a 240-seater pros. arch auditorium and a 70-seater flexible studio space, plus rehearsal rooms, workshop, wardrobe, computerised box office, bar and car parking!” says Tina. The season runs from September to July, offering 10 main productions each year, with other local companies (youth music, operatic societies, etc) offering another six to eight shows a year.

Since joining CoT, Tina has appeared in numerous productions and played the lead role of Isobel in David Hare's The Secret Rapture. Otherwise, she usually works backstage or on sound and once a month behind the bar. There is a youth group as well as a Writers' Group and last year, CoT ran a local festival of original one-act plays. “I appeared in two of these including the winning play,” says Tina. “One of the judges was David Campton, and it was interesting to meet the man who wrote so many frequently-performed one-acters, including the one I directed for my Honours production at UND.”

Tina would love to hear from anyone who knows her on either e-mail address: tina.hubballs@btinternet.com (work) or tina@tinasgaff.freeserve.co.uk (home).
