2) Alastair Smith (stage management, lighting and sound). His West End credits as a technical stage manager included A Chorus Line (Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, 1976) and Annie (Victoria Palace, 1978), before he moved into management with Andrew Treagus Associates. His love of theatre was based around the production period, solving problems and "getting the show on the road". Those shows included big musicals such as Starlight Express (Apollo Victoria, 1984), Time (Dominion Theatre, 1986) and Sunset Boulevard (Adelphi Theatre, 1993), alongside dramas like St Mark's Gospel with Alec McCowen (Comedy Theatre, 1978) - for which he also designed the set - and the Royal Shakespeare Company's Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Ambassadors Theatre, 1986). After the 1987-88 Australasian tour of Starlight Express, he worked for the Really Useful Group, including many Andrew Lloyd Webber tryouts at the Sydmonton Festival. In 1999, he moved to Disney as general manager for the opening of The Lion King (Lyceum Theatre, 1999).
3) Simon Jessel (set design and building).
