John is co-founder of the VUTC, and 2017 Chairman, as a successful businessman he has still found time for his passion the theatre. John was not only the driving force behind the Premier One-Act Play Festival he also offered his talents as Producer, Director Actor and Project Manager. His Festival idea paid off with a very successful premiere year with over 300 people attending and over $1,500 raised for the Rotary Club of Newmarket. John also supports several other Charities and Theatre Groups, including the Aurora - Silver Stars. John has enjoyed his time as Chair but would like to handover his responsibilities to Paul Bath whom he feels exceeds the qualifications for the role and has shown his dedication over the years. John wishes to focus his attentions on the One-Act Play Festival.
