DC Shell’s first play at Queens Hall was Comedians Can Cook in 2003. Since then they have staged family plays every year at Queen’s Hall. “The theatre is state of the art and coming to Queen’s Hall feels like coming home. We have built a great relationship with the technical team and enjoy working with everyone associated with the establishment. Normally I work behind the scenes as the stage manager. However, I had the pleasure of acting in Mama Mia in 2011 and two Bollywood plays (2004 and 2005) at Queens Hall. What a thrill that was! Each play is like a baby created and given life on the Queens Hall Stage to audience acclaim. Such joy!
