The NEW MTDXB Committee
For our 23/24 season our Committee Team has had a bit of a growth spurt and a shake-up! New roles added, and team structures defined, some returning members, some newly appointed and all elected to their roles by the MTDXB Community! Read on for details of the team and their respective responsibilities.
Meet the Team
Founder & Chairman
James 'Mitch' Mitchinson
Mitch and his wife Beth formed MTDXB in 2021 to bring stage musical events to audiences in Dubai.
As co-chairmen (chairpeople?) Mitch and Beth share coordination of production activities and Mitch can often be found lending his hand to directing and technical duties too.
Founder & Vice-Chair
Alongside Mitch, Beth takes a leading role in running the MTDXB Community.
She's a seasoned pro when it comes to choreography and is responsible for the show-stopping routines you'll see at our shows, as well as running our popular dance workshops.
Our Glenn balances the books, keeps us in the black and is the go-to when it comes to all things money (think of Scrooge McDuck with an Irish accent).
Glenn brings a wealth of community theatre experience to the team and also manages our relationships with the various professional licensors we work with.
Secretary, Social & Events Team
Talya keeps us organised, manages our meetings, sorts out our schedules and arranges all other MTDXB administration.
When not taking notes, she's planning team outings in her support role on the Social & Events Team.
Digital & Media Officer
Our technical wizard, Brian brings a creative edge to the MTDXB Team while supporting our various production efforts in any-which-way he can.
Responsible for all our branding and design work, he also keeps the website updated and supports the Marketing Team by creating visual and video assets for their social media activities.
Marketing & PR Officer
Rio joins the team for our 23/24 season, taking on the newly created role of Marketing & PR Officer.
A serial-entrepreneur and social (media) butterfly IRL, Rio will help us build robust strategies and her team will lighten the load while helping MTDXB extend it's reach throughout Dubai.
Marketing & PR, Social & Events Team
Liv & Shelley join Rio's new Marketing & PR Team to share duties across social media, PR & partnerships to ensure that the MTDXB brand continues to make an impact, and keep our growing followers up to date!
Liv also joins the Social & Events Team to support their activities.
Marketing & PR Team
Working with Liv and Rio (and a sprinkling of Brian!) Shelley brings her non-stage marketing experience and design know-how to the team and will help to elevate our marketing activity in both scale and execution.
Social & Events Officer
Alongside our stage productions, MTDXB continues to provide a growing number of social events and workshops for our community.
In the newly expanded capacity of our Social & Events Team, Sophie will lead the planning & coordination ensuring our calendars are full-to-the-brim with MTDXB-related appointments!
Social & Events Team
Gina joins the Social & Events Team to support Sophie and Sarah in making sure we keep ourselves busy with MTDXB activities, even when we're not preparing for our next show!
Social & Events Team
Supporting Sophie and Gina, Sarah continues to bring her social A-game to the new Events Team.
Expanding on her previous role of After-rehearsal roast organiser, Sarah is looking forward to arranging even more food (and drink!) related outings for our growing community.
General Committee Members
As MTDXB grows we firmly believe 'many hands make light work' and we welcome our new General Committee Members who will support the core team across all functions, events and productions.
