Favourite Things: Spectacular seven hills of Sheffield bring a sense of theatre
Nick Challenger grew up in Killamarsh on the outskirts of Sheffield and he still lives there with his partner John. Nick owns his own hair salon, Nicholas James, in Kiveton. He is probably best known, though, for his work with two community theatre groups, Wales Musical Theatre Company and Wales Methodist Church Pantomime Players, who perform shows annually at Sheffield’s Montgomery Theatre and the Acorn Theatre in Worksop, where their Show Stoppers 2016 will run from September 14 to 17. He is also a trustee of the Montgomery and is a member of the newly-established Friends of the Montgomery, established to fund important restoration for the city centre theatre. When he’s not performing or directing, Nick also provides wigs and hair for many of the amateur shows at both the Montgomery and the Lyceum Theatre.
