Dame Judi Dench

 

'Having performed in the York Mystery Plays three times, I know the excitement that these events bring to the people of York and the important place they hold within the city’s history. When I heard the Mystery Plays were returning to Museum Gardens and the scale and ambition which York Theatre Royal, Riding Lights Theatre Company and York Museums Trust have for this production, I was honoured to be asked to become patron. I urge you to get involved with the York Mystery Plays 2012 and experience the magic of creating theatre with your own community. It is something I will always remember.'

 

Mr Harry Gration



'I'm delighted to be involved in the York Mystery Plays 2012, and especially so, when I am alongside a lady that I have long admired - Dame Judi Dench.This is a collaboration between the York Theatre Royal, Riding Lights Theatre Company and York Museums Trust and it promises to be a fantastic event; something that we want the whole community to get involved in.

I have always wanted to say this alongside Dame Judi Dench - The name's Gration, Harry Gration.' 

 

Archbishop Sentamu

 

'This is a very exciting project and will provide a wonderful spectacle for the city. As you prepare to tell the story of God at work in Creation and Redemptions, I pray that you will be inspired by the majesty of the story, and that others in turn will be encouraged in faith and hope.'

HRH Prince Andrew,
The Duke Of York



'Having witnessed the enthusiasm and energy created by the York Mystery Plays 2000, I am delighted to learn that the Plays will be returning to the city next year and I am honoured to be a patron. I have been impressed by the scale and ambition of the project and how new partnerships have been formed between organisations and businesses across the city. I am looking forward to seeing for myself what will surely be one of the cultural highlights of 2012.'
