Tracey says: “My life has always had culture firmly cemented at its foundations. However, some young people don’t have access to it, so the Supporting Cast scheme is a great way to get them involved as audience members or even artists.
“Theatre plays a major role in building confidence, developing communication skills and expressing thoughts and feelings. With modern life being so polarised and technical, escapism is very important and the theatre offers this in a variety of ways.
“It can be so full of energy, momentary yet unforgettable, and different every time; it’s something you can immerse yourself in for a couple of hours, put your own interpretation on, and then discuss with friends afterwards.
“I strongly recommend joining Hull Truck Theatre’s Supporting Cast, as it could make a world of difference to a local child.”
