The PTC Management Committee

Following consultations with PTC members and with the support of the then current Artistic Director and incoming Artistic Directors, in June 2018 the trustees agreed to support the re establishment of a PTC committee to organise, manage and have oversight of PTC activities. It is envisaged that going forward trustees will move to a position where they only need to maintain executive oversight. 

The members of the committee are: Cait Hart Dyke (Co-Artistic Director), Barney Hart Dyke (Co-Artistic Director)
Tom Sainsbury (Committee Chair), Veronika Wilson (Putney Arts Theatre Manager)
Alexa Adam (Secretary), Kim Dyas (Facilities),  Caroline D'Arcy (Membership), Michael Cooke (Company Stage Manager) & Simon Crump (Costume & Backstage)

The following are the aims and objectives for the committee.
