This is unlikely to be completed before the end of Summer 2024. ​ We pay tribute and honour our friends at the theatre who are no longer with us. There are a lot of missing names to be added, so if anyone has memories, photos and updates to this roll call of past members or would like to add anything to those already listed, please contact us and we will be delighted to update this page. This list is in no particular order – and we would hope this does not just become a list of names – as much information would be appreciated from fellow members and friends. Please contact webmaster@altrinchamgarrick.co.uk Frank Boylan Frank Boylan had been a member and regular performer until a couple of years before his death in 2006. His comic timing was superb - he could stop the show by just walking across the stage, as he did notably in A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum. His performance in The Diary of Anne Frank (1976/77) as Anne's father was particularly memorable for its tenderness and humility. He will be remembered mostly for being Frank : a gentle man in all senses of the words. Join our mailing list Subscribe
