Teatro came into existence on a rain-soaked Wednesday afternoon in 2011. Alan had recently left his position as Regional Programme Manager for the National Youth Theatre. With a wish to still continue working with theatre, whilst filling a gap in the market, an idea was born.
It occurred to him there weren’t many avenues available for just anyone with a love of theatre, to gain skills from someone like himself – a professional actor/director from the Royal Shakespeare Company.There should be a place those who want to act, but do not want to join the local Am Dram, can reach out to. Surely he could create this space!
We are now a strong organisation moving to the West Sussex and Bognor Regis/Chichester with charitable status. Proudly working with mixed group of adults post 16 through our Adult Classes, in a life-affirming and joyous theatre activities.
Liverpool born RSC actor, Alan started his career over 30 years ago at Liverpool Playhouse. His broad and varied career has seen him appear on the West End, on Broadway and most recently in the Netflix series 'The Crown".
