What do you do on a typical production day?

It depends; if I’m cast then I go early, relax and prepare for show. If I’m crew then I make sure that I carry out my roles to make it easy for cast to go on stage. If I’m in front office then I help out with ushering and prize giveaways, or sometimes conducting interviews for our media fronts.

What do you have to say about the growth of theatre in Ghana?

I think theatre is existing in the country, and apart from Roverman Productions I have seen a few other theatre houses’ shows. I believe that when the business aspect is taken seriously and a lot more work goes into rehearsals and creativity, it is going to get better.
