Wales artistic community has honoured Godfrey Evans, the founder of West Glamorgan Youth Theatre Company, whose past members include a host of BAFTA and Olivier Award winning actors including  Michael Sheen and whose work inspired Russell T Davies.

 

The Special Achievement Award was presented to Godfrey Evans by Lucid Theatre director, playwright and former WGYT member Simon Harris, right, whose citation included an accolade from Michael Sheen that encompasses the ethos of the Wales Theatre Awards, “I owe not just my career to Godfrey Evans but also, and most importantly, my belief in what can be achieved when a community works together with common purpose. He has changed the lives of generations of young people and brought possibility and greater opportunity to literally thousands of us. I will never be able to thank him enough or express fully how much I, and countless others, owe to him.”
