Shona White said, “I am thrilled to become Patron of such an historic venue which holds a special place in my heart. I am looking forward to supporting The Playhouse as it goes from strength to strength”.
As a well-established leading lady, Shona has played a number of iconic roles including Magenta in The Rocky Horror Show at The Playhouse, Elphaba in Wicked at the Apollo Victoria, Éponine and Cosette in Les Misérables, Florence in Craig Revel Horwood’s Award Winning UK Tour of Chess and most recently Donna in Mamma Mia! at London’s Novello Theatre.
Shona added, “I feel privileged to have performed onstage at The Playhouse and as Patron I am keen to help promote the venue to ensure its future success”.
Jenna Harvey, Theatre Manager, commented, “The Playhouse is honoured and delighted that Shona has accepted our invitation to become Patron, it’s wonderful to have someone of her calibre on board to represent the theatre”.
Shona is the theatre’s first Patron and the first Patron for an Ambassador Theatre Group venue in London.
