2022 Board of Executives

Marketa Mellows


Anna Lorenz


Allan Haynes


Haley Doehnel

Social Media Manager

Chantelle Schieven


Elaine Strong

Director at Large

Allan was introduced to Peninsula Players by John Watts in 2007 and rapidly became an enthusiastic member. He joined the executive in 2009, serving as president from 2010 to 2014 and again from 2020 to date. He has been involved in many productions and has since directed a number of shows for the club, particularly several pantomimes, some of which he wrote, mostly in collaboration with John Watts.

Haley started out as a young actor in her very first Panto, Robin Hood in 2011. Since then she has acted, sung, and danced her way through many plays and musicals. She spent so much time backstage helping out with other shows, that she was asked to stage manage and assistant direct. Eventually she joined the executive board as Secretary in 2016 and took over as Social Media Manager in 2018.

My name is Anna Lorenz and I have been wardrobe mistress for Peninsula Players for the past nine years. I am currently serving on the executive as co-president. It’s been wonderful working with Peninsula Players, Mary Winspear and Radio Sidney. A fulfilling experience with wonderful talented people.

Marissa Schembri

Matt joined the Peninsula Players in 1997 as Don in a production of Butterflies are Free. Since then he has been very active, thanks to the patience of his wife, Tayna, and daughter, Shea. He has acted in over a dozen productions, including Barney in Last of the Red Hot Lovers, the Magistrate in Shot in the Dark, and the crazed dentist in Murder at the Howard Johnson’s. Matt has also directed, and his credits include Cinderella the Panto, two productions of Fawlty Towers, and an assistant directors spot in Mama Mia. Matt is also the current archivist for the club.

Marissa started doing makeup for the Peninsula Players in 2017 for 'Red and the Wolf', the Pantomime. She then became a Stage Manager for the next year's Panto, 'Ali Baba'. From there, Marissa joined the executive board in 2019 and acted in her first production: 'Murder on the Nile'. She recently produced our production of Steel Magnolias in May of 2022.
