Joan Leslie


Today, we sadly mark the passing of our treasured patron, Joan Leslie .
As our founding tutor, Hills Youth Theatre owes its heritage to Joan.

In her own words, “Young people usually have more enthusiasm for theatre than knowledge in its practice … They want the enjoyment of acting, and theatrical skills will give them confidence in their learned ability … with a purpose and a love of theatre for itself it can be most rewarding, and to see young people working as a group and being proud of their achievements is part of it.

Joan’s love for theatre, generosity of spirit and enthusiasm for sharing her experience with our students and community is a legacy that Hills Youth Theatre and its volunteers and tutors are proud to continue.JoanCollage
