committed to delivering both fun and traditional shows to the theatre,
complete with a fresh and modern twist, as it was back in 2005. It's this
ethos that has turned LHK into a global brand, with huge deals with
companies in both Lebanon and Dubai.
Lee is looking forward to the next 10 years and is planning to create a pool
of fresh young talent from across Merseyside to perform in a variety of
productions from pantomimes and touring shows to youth productions.
