“I was very impressed with the students from Liverpool Theatre School when I first met them quite by accident when I was playing Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly at the Liverpool Empire theatre. The students were all so full of talent and enthusiasm that when I was asked to work with the graduates I said yes in a heartbeat.”
