Martyn White, who founded New Thing Theatre in June, together with Julius Brady and Andy Mould, said: “We want to provide a modern, forward-thinking company that isn’t afraid to try new methods of producing shows within an exciting environment that has its members at its heart. Indeed, people of any age are welcome to come and join us, from actors, singers and dancers to backstage crew, dressers, wardrobe staff, prop makers and set designers.”

New Thing also plans to start several smaller theatre projects and a youth talent academy. For further details, Martyn can be contacted via e-mail at: [email protected] A Disco Inferno audition pack and more information is online at
