Deputy Chair – Hannah Mooney 

The Meteor is at the heart of Hannah’s passion for engaging in and producing locally created theatre. Born into a creative family, Hannah has been involved in the Hamilton Theatre scene from an early age and first took to the stage at The Meteor in 2012. She has since been involved in many creative projects on and off stage. 
Hannah’s passion lies in producing shows and she’s been lucky enough to work on some incredible creative projects at The Meteor. By day Hannah works in the event industry marketing everything from international sports’, concerts, and expos in Kirikiriroa. 
Hannah previously worked as the Audience Builder at the Meteor from 2017 – 2021 and is thrilled to be on the OVT in a governance capacity. 
Outside of work and the OVT Hannah hosts a weekly arts podcast on Free FM called ‘That’s the Ticket’ and enjoys interviewing creators of Meteor events and beyond about upcoming projects and initiatives.

Adrienne Clothier

Adrienne has a dream job working as one of the Creative Waikato team. She has pretty much retired from stage performance now but would reconsider it if there weren’t too many lines to learn. Hiding behind a quiet and calm manner, Adrienne distinguishes herself from other artists by actually having an interest in numbers and finances. She is the company bookkeeper and a shareholder in Free Lunch Street Theatre Company. Adrienne holds a Diploma in Performing Arts (where she met her lovely husband Nick), and a BA in Drama and Management

Ross MacLeod

Ross MacLeod has been writing, directing and producing theatre in Hamilton for the last decade. While his focus is often smaller scale original works, he has directed productions ranging from musicals to Shakespeare. He has seen The Meteor space come a long way since his first show there in 1999, but a theatre is more than just a building and he is keen to pass on any support he can offer to new writers and performers wishing to use that theatre. He was also a board member of the Hamilton Community Arts Council.


Tracey Wood

Tracey has a long history with the Meteor having been involved in its creation as a performance space more than 20 years ago when she managed the Hamilton Community Arts Council. During this time, she was also involved in the establishment of the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival, FUEL Festival, Indigo Multicultural Festival, redevelopment of the Artspost building, Fringe Festival and the Riff Raff Trust.

She currently works in her ‘happy place’ in events and engagement for Hamilton City Council with community at the heart of her mahi. Outside of work Tracey supports the arts as an avid audience member and when time allows, is backstage in a stage management or producer role.

Tracey notes that none of this would be possible without the support of her family who have been voluntold (like volunteering but less free will) for more events, shows and activities than she can count.
