*MEET THE CAST*
Mr Mushnik - John Hilliard (Right)
John got involved in musical theatre shortly after meeting his wife Sally, who persuaded him to join Stockport AOS. 38 years later John, Sally and the shows are still going strong.
In the early years he spent most of his shows in the chorus, but soon got the itch to start taking on roles. Rooster Hannigan was Johns final role with SAOS in 1988, before he and Sally joined East Cheshire’s a short time later.
After a couple of shows in the chorus, and as a reflection of his busy work schedule, John decided to take a backstage role, and spent some time working in Stage Management for ECMTC. When Johns job changed back in 2010, it meant he could start his move back on to the stage, but instead of taking on smaller parts john jumped in to the deep end by winning the part of lucky Eric in Bouncers, which won NODA's best play 2011.
Since then he has played John in Calender Girls, Clyde Gabriel in The Witches of Eastwick, and in 2017 he took on the role of Eamon in Boogie Nights. In between shows with East Cheshires John has played played Uncle fester in The Addams Family, and the lion in The Wizard of OZ with Knutsford MTC. ‘I can't wait to get back on stage for our production of Little Shop of Horrors. We’re blessed to have performers of the calibre that we do this year. I will see you in the bar afterwards for a Guinness.’
