I am Joppe van der Zwan, this year’s chair. I joined GUTS almost 7 years ago, when I was cast in my first role; Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s The Importance Of Being Earnest.
This is my second board year, as I was last year’s Commissioner of Internal and External Affairs.
Next to being on stage I love watching a (movie) musical, singing karaoke loudly and making my friends great meals. I hope to finally be able to see all the GUTS members in person again, and get up to our regularly unscheduled shenanigans!
I’m James O’Connor, secretary on the GUTS board for 2021-2022. I joined GUTS in 2020 but didn’t get as involved as I would have liked due to Covid – so, when I came back in 2021, I decided to throw myself into the organisation and join the board. I’ve loved theatre and performance since I was young, and always found the effort and work that goes into the backstage production fascinating. Outside of the society, I enjoy writing poetry and short stories, painting, and playing far too much Mario Kart.
My name is Kateřina Zouharová, and I am this year’s treasurer of GUTS. I am a second-year business student from the Czech Republic. I joined GUTS two years ago as a way to socialize with people interested in the same things I am, theatre and culture in general. I decided to become a part of the board because I like organizing things, and I am good at being bossy (if necessary). And treasurer was an obvious choice for me as my brain basically runs on numbers, tables, and graphs. Apart from that, I am the person to go to when life goes wrong or when you want to have long conversations about dogs and coffee.
