"Personally I would like to thank you all.
Isobel started her Best journey with summer schools around eight years ago and then started Best Youth Theatre four years ago. The confidence, experiences, opportunities, friendships and sheer joy that her time with you has brought will stay with her (and us) for a long, long time.
The time and energy you all give to the children and young people who attend your classes and groups is amazing, thank you! "
A bit like our students, I found my true creative home at Best. A place to be who you want to be, to not be judged or pitched against others. A place where I’m supported and surrounded by like-minded people. I’ve been in the industry a long time and although it’s competitive and can be very critical, the environment where the best performers and productions are made is one that feels safe and allows freedom and confidence to grow. A place that is fun and challenging, a place that has the potential and room to grow with us all. That’s the best place to find your light.
