Peter Barron MBE

Our President, Peter Barron joined us to promote our production of Titanic The Musical back in April 2012, marking the 100th anniversary of the tragic disaster that struck the vessel on her maiden voyage. Peter, then Editor of The Northern Echo), was recruited to play a walk-on part of W.T. Stead - a former editor of the Northern Echo who died on the Titanic, in the Boarding and Smoking Room scenes in one performance.

 

As time went on, Peter became more and more involved, and eventually appeared throughout the show in every performance.

 

As the final curtain fell on Titanic we were proud to make Peter our first Honorary Patron, and in March 2013 Peter was unanimously voted as President of DarlingtonOS.

 

We continue to work in partnership with Peter to keep live theatre thriving in Darlington and the surrounding area.
