Going to a Youth Theatre was one of the most important and formative experiences of who I am today. It helped me unfold myself and understand so much more about the people and world around me, plus it was a HUGE amount of fun. BYT offers this same kind of opportunity to young people every day and I’m very proud to do what I can to support that.
BYT is very special to me. I got involved in about 1976 and not only did I meet life-long friends, it played a critical part in deciding my future career, helped me get my first work in the arts, and all my family have been involved in various ways over the years. As Chair of Trustees I am now giving back to the organisation, ensuring its future and helping others benefit from the opportunities it gave me.
