Our Committee

John Hallahan

Chairman / Director / Actor

I joined the Pantoloons in 2013 and have appeared in a number of supporting roles ever since.  I was invited to take on the role of chairman in 2016 and was delighted to accept. My pantomime education was further developed in 2019 when I directed our presentation of Treasure Island. This is a friendly and talented group to which I feel privileged to belong.

Ros Tunbridge

Ros is a founder member of the Pantoloons and an absolute superstar!

Theresa Hallahan

Secretary / Actor

I joined The Pantoloons in 2003 - it was my first acting role.  The pantomime was 'Frankenstein the Panto' and I played Prince Ludwig alongside Vicky Biggs.  That was it, I was hooked and have performed in every show since.  The Pantoloons are a great group of people and I have made many good friends over the years.
