Aizah is a young, Midlands based actress of British Pakistani heritage, who, represented by Red Talent Management, has spent the past year touring with very different companies. Having trained Theatre and Professional Practice at Coventry University, and beginning to develop her Circus/Aerial skills Aizah focus’ on a physical/musical approach to acting. Her recent credits include tackling the idea of radicalisation of young people in the UK working with TIE for The Playhouse Theatre (Birmingham) before travelling to Poland to create SILENCE with Teatr Biuro Podrozy which highlights the struggle faced by refugees and migrants.
Aizah is touring nationally with us with our verbatim theatre show “I told my Mum I was going on an R.E. trip…” in 2017 and says: I’ve never used this method of delivery before so I cannot wait to get stuck into rehearsing this play!
Bradley is a professional actor working all over the UK. Most recently, he has just performed in Peter Pan at the Stockport Plaza. Recent credits include: The Marked (Theatre Tèmoin), Super Booty (Epstein Theatre). Bradley has been a part of our Youth Theatre & Young Actors Company since 2008!
I’m very excited to coming home and working with the amazing 20SH Youth Theatre as Musical Director, music is a passion of mine and i feel very lucky to be giving this role, especially coming from the Youth Theatre myself. I have seen some very talented writing and poetry skills from the group, so I can’t wait to return!
