Introducing The todaytix squad

Our See Theatre Differently campaign helped us find six Social Ambassadors who believe that theatre isn't for a certain kind of person, everyone should have a chance to see it - not the richest, not the oldest and not just people who are able to queue for hours for tickets. Everyone should have access to theatre.

Made up of young performers who eat, sleep and breathe theatre, our TT Squad will be seeing, talking, blogging and vlogging about it too. Sharing their experiences as people going through training and starting their careers as performers, we'll share their creative over the next year.

Bella

Studying at the MTA, Bella's passionate about showing people that there's more to theatre than standing on a stage. "It's important to realise that our industry is so much more than just acting - being on time, always learning, respecting creative teams and acknowledging the importance of mental health and well-being in our industry."
