I absolutely loved my time at Hagley Theatre Company. It opened my eyes to a whole brand new world. It completely changed my life and I am so grateful to HTC, Cameron Mattox and Sam Beveridge for introducing me to the world of performing arts. HTC nurtured my passion and gave me the grounding and foundation teachings that allowed me to follow my dreams!
