Carolyn Floyd

25 appearances in RDG productions

Carolyn has grown up with the Drama Group. After several Sundowners productions she made her first appearance in a main RDG presentation in The Miracle Worker in 1978 - as a small child!. She went on to appear in several musicals - Godspell, Oliver! and The Matchgirls - to name a few.

Carolyn studied Dance and Drama at college after which she returned to us and has choreographed many of our musicals, for example Guys and Dolls, Oliver! and A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum.

She has not only choreographed but also directed our musical compilations Dear Diary and Songs of the Century.

Carolyn was ideally cast as the dance teacher in the tap-dancing comedy Stepping Out. She went on to appear in the comedy Noises Off where she played the attractive Brook.

Carolyn successfully directed Sweet Charity in November 2002 and was responsible for the choreography in Privates on Parade. In 2004 she directed the glitzy musical Copacabana which was a marvellous vehicle to display her great talent in choreography! Two years later she directed and choreographed the toe-tapping twenties musical Thoroughly Modern Millie with great success. In 2007 she compiled and directed the musical tribute to one of our best-loved members ~Life of Brian - a Celebration of the life of Brian Walters. In her production of Mack and Mabel her superb choreography was very much in evidence as was the case in her production of All that JazZ - an A - Z of Musicals. Other great successes have been her exuberant direction of 42nd Street - and Crazy For You which marked Carolyn's tenth major RDG production. Her next production in 2015 was the sparky Dolly Parton musical Nine to Five which after her customary two-year interval came White Christmas which proved a hugely popular audience pleaser, filling Woking's Rhoda McGaw on several nights. The following year she choreographed the exuberant dances for Nell-Gwynn.
