BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust was formed in 1997 by the Waller family in memory of their son and brother, Charlie, who took his own life whilst suffering from depression. The Trust offers support and education to those affected by depression and mental illness. Its vision is of a world where people understand and talk openly about depression; where young people are educated on the importance of staying mentally well, and where treatment is available to everyone who needs it.

Particularly in musical theatre and the performing arts, depression and mental unhappiness is often masked by a smiling face. Everyone has a duty to protect each other in a profession where rejection and redundancy are two of the most common words in daily usage. The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust is available to help.

It will be the 20th Anniversary production from the same team who for the last 19 years have presented The Night of 1000 Voices at the Royal Albert Hall and elsewhere.
