There can’t be too many people with such a historical and emotional link to a local drama group like Alexandra Underwood has with the Rickmansworth Players.
Alexandra’s mother and father met in the 1960s while performing for the Players.
Wedding bells followed stage calls, and then the arrival of Alexandra and her sister.
Since the age of 7 years-old Alexandra has performed with the Watersmeet based group.
And now after a break of 10 years due to moving to Northamptonshire she returns to play the White Witch in the Players’ production of The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe in November.
Alexandra said: “We recently returned to live in Chorleywood and it’s been amazing to see how the Players’ have grown during that time.
“I’m excited about the role but also a little anxious as the standard of the Players’ productions is so high and the organisation first class. Everyone is working so hard to put on a great show.
“Mum and Dad will be in the audience and I’ll know if I performed well as I want people to leave the theatre strongly disliking my character, as she’s a sociopath who’ll stop at nothing to get her own way.”
“She’s certainly not a panto wicked witch, as she’s scarier and more sinister. Ultimately, it’s a fantastic story of good overcoming evil.”
