Lukes New York AADA Fund

Our son Luke has been given the incredible opportunity to pursue his chosen career in musical theatre and acting, by being selected by The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.

This prestigious Academy has had no fewer than 96 Oscars, 245 Emmys and 86 Tony nominations connected to its alumni. Names such as Robert Redford, Kurt Douglas, Lauren Bacall Anne Hathaway, Pual Rudd Kim Catrall and Danny Devito to name but a few have all studied there.

His current studies are at Newcastle College where he is soon to complete his foundation degree in musical theatre.
Luke’s absolute passion is musical theatre and acting which he eats, sleeps and breathes!!!!!  He has had some great roles to date in shows such as Miss Saigon, Les Miserables, Grease, West Side Story and Chorus Line.
He also works with the children at The Gala Theatre Stage School where he can be seen to pass on his enthusiasm.

With the academy being based in the centre of New York we are doing ALL we can to realise Luke’s dream to attend which includes fundraising towards the fees and living costs.

Luke is very hard working and dedicated and we know that with YOUR help he will be treading the boards of Broadway and the West End.

Any amount you give small or large will be a great help and we thank you for taking the time to look at our Go Fund Me for Luke

With many thanks Jane & Tony............. and of course Luke
