With heartfelt thanks... we say goodbye to Rosie!

After five busy years at the helm of Theatre 20, Rosie Shaw will be leaving her position as our General Manager this month. Rosie's contributions, energy and infectious smile have been instrumental in Theatre 20 being where it is today. She has worked tirelessly and passionately to make everything happen 'behind the scenes' since T20's very first meeting of the Founding Artists back in 2009. She will be greatly missed. We wish Rosie well as she heads out on the next exciting chapter of her career.
