Geri was herself a trained actress. Geri used her skills to support hundreds of children and young people within both our school projects and our own Youth Theatres. Our theatres flourished due to Geri's love of the theatre and her boundless care and commitment to all of the children and young people that attended any of the theatre groups. Geri’s Song is a fundraising event where the money raised will be placed in to the Geri Crooke Trust.
LAMDA and connections
Geri also delivered our LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) sessions to a consistently high standard. This was evident in the high pass rate of the children that entered. However, Geri's baby was our Connections Festival Theatre group who she nurtured from the start with her director partner, Glen.
The purpose of the trust
The Geri Crooke Trust will therefore support children and young people that cannot afford to go to the theatre but would like to watch a theatre productions or children who want to take LAMDA qualifications but cannot afford the fees.
