Steve Harris
Associate Director, 1984 – 1989

Steve was appointed Associate Director by Chris Bond in 1984 and given responsibility to develop a young people’s theatre programme. He wrote teachers’ resources for many productions, oversaw the Youth Theatres and worked closely with the youth and community teams across Tower Hamlets, playing a significant role in the success of The East End Festival (TEEF). Along with the local authority, he identified White Horse Road as a potential home for Half Moon Young People’s Theatre and helped bring the move to fruition.

Prior to joining the company, Steve was an actor and then a drama teacher. He regularly brought young people to see shows at Half Moon Theatre. He continues to work in arts education to this day.
