We are thrilled that one of our Wakefield Youth Music Theatre alumni will be returning to our stage with The John Godber Company for Ruby & the Vinyl. George Reid, who plays Tom, was in Miss Saigon in 2013 before going on to train at Guildford School of Acting.
George has performed at The Globe as well as touring Macbeth (UK) and Romeo & Juliet (Spain). We’re looking forward to seeing him perform on our stage after almost ten years of brilliant performing arts achievements.

0 StarsTheatre Royal Wakefield was my local theatre growing up; it’s the place that inspired me to pursue acting. Little did 18-year-old me, think that 8 years after performing at the Royal Variety and in Miss Saigon, that I’d be back there treading the boards with the John Godber Company. This theatre has a special place in my heart and I’m so chuffed to be able to work in this beautiful theatre once again!
