Who We Are

Matt Hilton

I joined Alternate Shadows in 2007, because I had always enjoyed acting, but needed to work on my confidence. I took part in 3 or 4 shows, and had a blast.

Everyone was so welcoming, and rehearsals and performances were always such a good laugh.

My favourite memory was definitely playing the waiter in the production of Alan Ayckbourn's Confusions. Although it may at first sound a simple part, it turned out to be more complicated than my wildest dreams!! Only the characters within earshot of the waiter could be heard, so unless I was in the right place, at the right time, (and serving the right food), everything would have been a complete nonsense! In any case it went great, and it was fantastic to be a part of!!

I would highly recommend Alternate Shadows to anyone (either as a member of the audience, or of the cast!).
