Aidan Turner has joined an illustrious group to become the latest patron of MGC Futures.
The following is from the group’s official site:
“The future of theatre depends on young people. They are the theatre makers and theatre goers of tomorrow. MGCfutures reaches out to people of different ages and backgrounds, providing information, guidance and support through mentorship, the Bursary scheme, online resources, workshops and participatory activities. It is also committed to enabling young people to visit the theatre who might otherwise not be able to do so.
MGCfutures is a charitable organisation, utilising the skills and experience of the Michael Grandage Company and governed by a Board of Trustees. MGCfutures Education Associates, Dominic Francis and Samantha Lane, develop workshops and online materials to support theatre-goers to get the most out of their experience, especially those visiting a theatre for the first time.
MGCfutures is also supported by the charity’s patrons: Dame Judi Dench, Dawn French, Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, Daniel Radcliffe, Simon Russell Beale CBE, Sheridan Smith OBE, Aidan Turner, David Walliams OBE and Ben Whishaw.”
