We welcome Bob Tomson as a new Associate and congratulate Julie McLoughlin on becoming a full member of the Guild.
GoDA is delighted to announce that Bob Tomson has been appointed an Associate Member with immediate effect.
Bob, who lives in West Sussex, has been an actor, stage and screen writer, a college and university lecture in drama, and now divides his time as a professional director in both theatre and TV. His early years as an amateur actor with Liverpool Masque players and the National Youth Theatre gave him his first love of the stage, since when he has founded no fewer than 18 youth theatre groups, has become a sought after guest tutor at leading London Drama Schools and on amateur theatre training courses.
His credits as a professional director include West End and Broadway musicals and plays, earning him Olivier, BAFTA and Tony Award Nominations.
Following a successful assessment by two experienced members of the Guild at the Hull and East Riding Festival in March, Julie McLoughlin has been appointed a full member of GoDA. Julie, who lives in Jersey but spends much of her professional life in mainland UK, has been an Associate Member since 2010.
Contact details for both Bob and Julie are available in the appropriate Members section of the website.
