“Christian Steel was the perfect compare for National Theater Connections at the Theater Royal Newcastle. We were looking for a role-model in the arts for our young performers and we found that in Christian. His comedy had our1300 people audience energized and geared up for the performances throughout the weekend. The performers in the festival saw in him, another way of exploring acting through comedy – we think he may have inspired more than just a few!” Oh and one from the kids:”Christian was proper funny!”
