Carrie Wale

Actor / Director / Vice Chair of Whetstone Drama Committee

Carrie has been a member of Whetstone since 1982 and has been involved in nearly every production since! ( She hopes you’re not sick of the sight of her! ) An all-rounder, Carrie acts and directs and is also a long serving committee member. There are lots of favourites for Carrie but her top five would be directing ‘ Brassed Off ’, ‘ Stepping Out ’ and

 ‘ Calendar Girls ’, acting in ‘ Hobsons Choice ’ and of course ‘ Educating Rita ’ opposite her good friend Malcolm! Carrie is married to Martin who trod the broads early in their relationship. She does however, share the limelight with her family and is very happy to continue, as long as the audience want her.

Emma Lawrence


Emma joined Whetstone at the age of 7, when her grandma gave her, her 1st part as a little french girl Adele in

‘ Jane Eyre ’. She was very eager to take to the stage in further parts and then her grandma and father set up the Whetstone Youth Group. Emma’s part in ‘ Blood Brothers ’ was the most memorable as she had to learn to speak with a liverpudlian accent. She then left the group to concentrate on her A Level performing Arts, followed by studying BA Sociology at Derby University. Emma returned to Whetstone Drama, for the production of ‘ The Corn is Green’ . She was thrilled to be back on the stage again and was back for another production ‘ How Does Your Garden Grow? ’.

Emma is eagerly looking forward to the next role.

Charlotte Stokes


Charlotte joined Whetstone Drama Group in the autumn of 2015, after going to watch ‘ Steel Magnolias ’ with her nanny. That evening, her nanny frogmarched her to go and speak to Mel as she had been looking to join a drama group and rekindle her love for it. Needless to say, she joined.

During her spare time, she can be found reading, swimming or watching films. She is very much a Harry Potter fan, the books being her pride and joy!
