Emmerdale star lends support to Crowdfunder
Jonny McPherson, who many of you will know as Liam Cavanagh in the long running hit soap ‘Emmerdale’, has been tweeting in support of our local Green Hammerton theatre company Badapple Theatre who are currently fundraising for our final (and only) live indoor theatre performances of 2020, scheduled to take place at Joseph Rowntree Theatre in York in December.
The Emmerdale actor commented “My absolute pleasure. Least I could do for a wonderful company which has provided me with a some of the most memorable experiences of my life. Wouldn’t be where I am today without you all. Good luck!”.
Those with longer memories locally might have been lucky enough to see Jonny McPherson touring to some of the smallest venues in the county for the rural-touring specialists, with a one-man show about James Herriot and the original cast tour of their hit musical Eddie and the Gold Tops.
The Crowdfunder appeal from Badapple Theatre is to support current performers at the company and runs until 30th November. For more information head to https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/badapple-christmas-tour-un-cancelled
