Tim Minchin Patron! Excitingness!

Western Australian Youth Theatre Company is thrilled that our first official celebrity patron is… ta da!


Tim Minchin…is a f#@king genius.
5 guffaws out of 5 (thescene.com.au)

‘Take out a second mortgage, sell the car, and put your money on the safest bet you’ll ever make in this uncertain world: that Tim Minchin will be the next big thing in musical comedy.’
(Time Out Magazine, London)

Tim is a London-based comedian, actor and musician originally from Perth, Western Australia. He was one of our members and composed and directed the music for our production of Berthold Brecht’s ‘The Caucasian Chalk Circle’
We got in touch with him and Tim said “Well, sure, I’ll be a patron. I love patronising stuff.”

We’re also very pleased to welcome on the board…ta da!
