On Thursday the 11th of May we learned the sad news that our dear friend Philippa had taken her final bow.
It is hard to put into words the sadness felt in our musical theatre family.
Philippa was a long time friend of HXT having first joined us in 2012 as our director for Sweet Charity. Our love for Philippa not only as a director but as a supporter, friend and mentor was instant and will continue in all our hearts.
Many beautiful memories and stories have been shared since Philippa left us, with everyone having their own story of a unique friendship.
On behalf of HXT, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to her husband Lionel, her beloved goddaughter Leona and all her friends and family.
Philippa, you may have left us but we know you will always be looking over us with a cup of Carte Noir in one hand, a script on the other and Taggart cuddled up beside you.
Rest in Peace Philippa, you truly were one in a million.
