Lillie was so thrilled to be a part of the creation of Stories and More. After gaining a BA Honers in Performing Arts, Lillie toured the UK with shows and along the way she found herself working more and more with young children and really enjoyed the ways of using theatre and her skills to help a child develop and have fun.
A few years after graduating, along with Teoni, they founded Stories and More and have really drawn on all their experiences to deliver wonderful stories. Lillie is thrilled to be able to be work in an environment which combines her love for theatre and working with children.
Her proudest moment was creating the Adventure with Sam Theatre Shows, which has now been touring for over 2 years. With her knowledge in theatre producing, knowing how important it is for children to experience theatre at a young age, it was very important to Lillie to create a interactive show that was like no other.
