Donna is a huge fan of musical theatre, all kicked off by an obsession with Saturday Night Fever - the Musical. Despite her very limited dancing skills she manged to wangle her way into the 2002 Commonwealth Games Opening ceremony and stalked Arlene Philips.
She has been singing in musicals for the past 20 years, starting with Gilbert and Sullivan Productions in her home town of Morecambe. She was an overly enthusiastic member of Liverpool University Student Theatre, taking part in all shows, including directing Fame the Musical and playing Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors.
After University she lived and worked in Canada for 9 months, before deciding to move to Manchester to pursue a career in television. She has worked in her dream job as a Script Editor on Emmerdale, The Worst Witch and Cold Feet and has now returned to Emmerdale as Script Producer.

Her most recent roles for Side By Side have been Pickles in The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Olive in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Heidi in Title of Show. Donna is thrilled to be a founding member of Side By Side and could not wish to be working with a better group of friends.
Mark joined the wonderful world of musical theatre a bit later in life, apart from the odd school show and regular sessions singing in the shower, but has not looked back since. For the last 12 years he has enjoyed being involved in many shows across the Manchester area and has loved every minute, made great friends and played far too many priests on stage!
Side By Side roles have included Officer Lostock in Urinetown, William Barfee in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Norbert in The Great American Trailer Park and most recently Jeff in title of show. Other highlights have been singing in Elegies for Angels Punks and Raging Queens, especially during the Manchester Pride Candle Lit Vigil, I love You, You're Perfect, Now Change and singing at The Bridgewater Hall.

Mark is over the moon to be a founding member of the Side By Side family, not only because he has had the chance to work with a wonderful group of extremely talented friends, but also because of the opportunities to delve into the lesser known gems of musical theatre and play such a variety of roles.
