Stephen Freeman's Initial Statement

“I am delighted to be joining the SJT, an organisation with a rich and prolific history of producing work with a national and international reputation. It’s a privilege to play a role in the life of this organisation that is much loved by artists and audiences alike. I’m also looking forward to calling Scarborough my home and making the most of its extraordinary setting.
“I believe organisations like the SJT have a vital role to play in connecting the local community and providing a resource for both residents and visitors. The arrival of Paul Robinson as Artistic Director marks a new chapter for the theatre and I welcome the exciting opportunity to help steer the theatre towards an even brighter and more vibrant future.”
