Me and YPT

I joined Young People's Theatre Inc. Newcastle in 2002 as an "out of school hobby" because I thought that maybe I'd like to to pursue acting as a career. After performing in my very first production Charlottes Web I realised there was so much more to theatre, and there my passion for behind the scenes started.

During my time with YPT, and as you'll see, I made my way from a performer, to a Stage Manager, Lighting Operator, Lighting Designer, Director and all the way to appointed Technical Officer.

Since then I continued to work with YPT by returning to mentor kids and run Stage Management workshops. All of this would not have been possible without my mentor, friend and Artistic Director of the theatre, Wendy Leis.
