John Dring (1949-2004)
|Prominent Lincolnshire farmer,
John, I had been told, was a fine actor during the late seventies and
eighties and excelled particularly in pantomime. We tried from
time to time to persuade him to return
and I am delighted that he finally accepted a small role as a peasant in
the chorus in the 2003 panto,
Well... it was a small role when we gave it to him anyway...!
John enjoyed his return to the Broadbent stage and we were hoping that he might delight audiences with another appearance. Sadly John died in November 2004 after a year long illness.
John was married to Janet and father of four: Nigel, Rachel, Ryan and James. The whole family has been involved at the Broadbent in various capacities making 'Dring' one of the biggest names in the LRP history!
