The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire

Phoebe Johnson

Phoebe participated in 24 productions at the Barn.

Pheobe died at the beginning of October. First credited in 1974 as part of the wardrobe team for King Lear, she remained as a regular member of the backstage team, mostly in costumes but occasionally for props, until 2003, with her involvement in Gaslight. During these years she worked backstage for over 20 productions.

In the early 1980s her son Ben appeared in youth productions. Phoebe was a regular member of the wardrobe team that works during the day on Mondays and Tuesdays, and also did front-of-house coffee until earlier this year. She attended every production as an audience member.

Thorough and reliable in everything she volunteered for, she was a quiet but amiable companion to all her friends at the Barn.

We send our sincere condolences to her family.
