Danny DeLyons

 

Danny comes from a long line of entertainers and has been

performing since the age of 8.

He has had lead roles in many productions including:

"Ernie's Incredible Hallucinations"

"Barron Bolligrew"

"The Cabbage King"

"The Heiress"

As well as appearing in the renowned Brownsea Island Theatre's

production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummers Night Dream"

For the past few years he has cut his teeth in the world of comedy

improvisation, performing in "Whose Line Is It Anyway" style shows.

 

Danny received critical acclaim for his role as Victor in our

Scaramouche production of Noel Coward's "Private Lives",

his first foray back on stage in almost 15 years.

In fact, Danny has an interesting link to Noel Coward,

his grandfather, Brian Lyons, was an orphan in the 1930's and lived

at 'The Actors Orphanage' in Surrey, an orphanage for children of

actors who lost their lives in the precareous world of Georgian theatre. 

The orphanage was funded and presided over by Noel Coward himself,

who regularly visited the children with is Hollywood friend Marlene Dietrich. 

Without Noel, perhaps Brian would not have lived

and Danny would not be here to appear in our plays!
