In the year 2000 while looking through the Sidney Review, Alex came across information about auditions for ‘Sylvia’. He thought his wife might be interested in having a part in the play. His wife Donna did not get a part but Clem Tisserand managed to encourage Alex to be involved. 

Since then through to the present time Alex has been building sets for Peninsula Players. The set for ‘Under the Yum Yum Tree’ won the Big Award at the Ladysmith Drama Festival and honourable mentions were given at two more festivals. One year the Festival went to Kamloops with the financial support of Donna his wife.

After P.P. left St Stephens, the construction crew worked out of storage lockers just past Sleggs by McDonald Park Rd. This proved very difficult so Alex and Clem then started building many of the sets in Alex’s garage on James Island Road. As each part of the set was completed it was then moved to where the play was rehearsing. Many lunches were served in Alex’s kitchen.

Alex found a location for P.P. on 1st Street in Sidney which became P.P’s home for two years. Alex then found another location – Greenglade School which became our base for a few years.

Following our time there, we then moved to the school on Mt Newton X Rd and finally to the M.W.C.

Alex was our vice president for a while and president for a year. Alex has always enjoyed working with everyone and enjoys the challenge of making the sets for all our productions.

Many thanks Alex for all you have contributed to P.P. over the years.
