Our Apprentice this year was chosen by Zoom and with the skills of the wonderful Carolyn McLeod. Out of many hopefuls we chose Jasmine Hill from Penenden Heath, Maidstone, she is doing a cracking job as our Faery and Mechanical, Snug and also gets to sing, dance and play her flute. If you would like to be a part of next years tour or indeed sponsor this wonderful scheme, then please get in touch via our contacts page. We always cast a young person from Kent of the ages 17-22 to take part in with the unique opportunity to tour around the countryside with a company of professional actors.
