From The Yorkshire Times.
As Berwick Kaler’s 40-year reign as pantomime dame comes to an end, York Theatre Royal has launched a fund to celebrate and continue his legacy.
“The Berwick Kaler Foundation will enable us to bring families, friends and communities together to share experiences and enjoy theatre in all its many forms,” said Executive Director Tom Bird.
“We want our pantomime audiences and our whole community to support the Berwick Kaler Foundation and help us to grow the YTR family.
“The theatre strives to be a place where everyone feels they are welcome and that they belong. We want to be accessible to all. We want our community to have a stake in what we do. We want to continue to engage, inspire and excite.”
The Sylvia and Colin Shepherd Charitable Trust, long-standing supporters of the theatre, has started the Foundation with a donation to support the work YTR does across the year in the community, particularly for children and young people.
