True Blood's Stephen Moyer's home town theatre: Show's poster is not for Twits!

BRENTWOOD Theatre should have no problem filling seats at this year’s Christmas show after it got an award-winning artist to design the artwork.

Brentwood Theatre Company struck it lucky when Karen McInnis, an American artist and animator whose work has won her an Emmy award, agreed to design the artwork for its Christmas production of Roald Dahl’s much loved story, The Twits.

Mark Reed, from the community theatre, which is in Shenfield Road, explained it was thanks to the theatre’s patron, a former Brentwood boy, Stephen Moyer, that the artist came on board.

He said: “One of the American fans of our patron, Stephen Moyer, offered her services as a professional designer and created this wonderful unique art work for us.

“This is in addition to over £6,000 which has been donated by our international friends, which has been a huge boost to the theatre.”

Being such a big fan of Stephen’s US hit series True Blood, when she heard about the theatre, Karen offered her services.
