She is an experienced arts and office administrator, and returned to the arts eight years ago as a fundraiser. She previously worked at the Unicorn and Wilton's Music Hall.

Dorcas is delighted to be a member of the Park Theatre team (not just because it's a 10-minute bike ride from home and she can bring her dog!) and is looking forward to generating support to enable Park Theatre to continue on its exciting journey. She specialises in theatre fundraising and in trying to prevent her children from watching and laughing at her in old episodes of Poirot.

Sacha Queiroz

Sacha Queiroz | Technical Manager

Sacha has worked in theatre for the past 20 years, in all forms from the very large to very small and everything in-between. He has been lucky enough that this job has taken him around the world a few times. His life-long passion for theatre and the arts is inspired by a family who all work in the theatre industry.

He started his career as a casual at the Beck theatre in Hayes, a venue he returned to as Technical Manager ten years later. Since then he has worked at the Dominion Theatre, the Apollo Victoria, the National, Trinity Theatre, the Wycombe Swan (to name a few) and abroad with Saudi Aramco and Disney.

Barry Card

Barry Card | Venue & Volunteer Manager

Despite an early interest in the arts, Barry briefly flirted with the world of fashion before ending up in IT, via a stint in the printing industry. After a 30-year career, he finally hung up his IT hat following five years as a freelance consultant.


After his chance discovery of the dilapidated Wilton’s Music Hall in 2008, Barry joined an enthusiastic team of volunteers campaigning, fundraising and helping to preserve the building’s archaeological collection. His passion for theatre and live performance was rekindled with a vengeance and he went on to become an usher and then Front of House Manager. As Wilton’s was saved and secured, Barry graduated to the very different, yet equally exciting, world of Park Theatre in 2015. Since then he has taken great pleasure and pride in working with a highly motivated and dedicated front of house team and being a valued member of the Park Theatre family.


The undisputed king of press nights and galas, Barry is also a shameless name-dropper and cites his favourite claims to fame as being called Bazza by Barry Cryer, and appearing in full evening dress on stage with Sir Ian McKellen, albeit prostrate and playing 3rd dead Frenchman DSR.

Daniel Cooper

Daniel Cooper | Development & Production Assistant


After studying French, German and Italian at Royal Holloway, living in Spain and working for several years as a secondary school teacher and pastoral leader, Daniel couldn’t ignore the call to work in the arts any longer.

He has produced shows for the Mountview Catalyst Festival and The White Bear, Kennington.

He’s excited by both the work and the ambition of Park Theatre and glad to form part of the process of raising friends and funds that will help the venue grow from strength to strength. Life beyond Park Theatre involves, with varying degrees of success, being a culture vulture, globetrotter and gym bunny.
