We are saddened to announce the sad loss of our beloved Technical Director, Mike Kingston. Mike was a leading force behind Theatre Studio’s technical department since its conception over 30 years ago. He designed every one of the sets for our shows and his passion and dedication, not only to us but to the Cheltenham Playhouse, will be greatly missed.
He inspired generations of technical students many of whom are now working professionally and his imagination and flair will live on through them.
We send all our love to his family and friends during this difficult time and will continue to carry on his legacy for future technical students.
His funeral will take place at the Cheltenham Crematorium, Willow Chapel, on Tuesday 22nd March at 2.30pm.
Donations, if desired, for the Cheltenham Playhouse or Alzheimer's Society sent to

'If I should die before the rest of you, Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone. Nor, when I’m gone, speak in a Sunday voice, But be the usual selves that I have known. Weep if you must, Parting is hell. But life goes on, So sing as well.'
