With each week our impending production 'Pirates of Penzance' draws closer. This article begins a new regular online feature to get to know our principles, company and production team. We hope you enjoy this first interview with Frankie Parry, the actress playing 'Mabel'. Interview by Rachel Hiland.

How long have you been in Emco?

Since January 2014 -it's flown by! ! 

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you during a show/rehearsal?

There are too many inside jokes to remember...

P1080035bwGive a brief description of the character you are playing.

Mabel is a young, innocent, slightly self-centred daughter of a major general who quickly falls head over heels in love with a pirate, but things don't work out as easily as they first expected...


What would your dream role be?

I honestly have no idea! But after singing Roxie in the last concert I would love to be in “Chicago”

What's most challenging about your role?

Gilbert & Sullivan is very operatic and my character has a lot of extremely high notes. It's very challenging, but that's one of the things I like about it. 

What do you love/hate about your character?

She's quite full of herself but I think she's naive really - nothing like me…honest!

What is your pre show routine?

I'm sure everyone will agree that it's trying to make sure that I actually get ready on time! There's a lot of face to put on! 

Tell me why people should come and watch this show.

We work so very hard for months at a time to ensure we have a great show for our local community to watch. We don't get paid for it, but we do it because we love it and we want people to enjoy an evening of great entertainment –plus this shows hilarious!



Next time...

Mike Killoran, the (...very model of a Modern...)  Major General tells Rachel about his 40 years with EMCo, the comic moments on stage and off, and his self professed obsession with uniforms.
