Keith Barrett

Vice President/Stage Director

I first joined YG in 1993 when we were celebrating our 5th show called “Fine and Dandy”. 


I have also been involved in many Scouting Gang Shows on lighting, sound and stage management. In 2013 I moved to the Isle of Wight and in recognition for my involvement with YG I was honoured to be asked to be Vice President. 


To give up YG totally was really hard so again for one week in August I will take my weeks holiday to come and share show week with you and be your Stage Director. Good Luck everyone!

Sarah's son is a member of Younger Generation Theatre Group, and she has been a key parent in helping to get us back on our feet since the closure due to Covid lockdown. As well as being cast registrar, she is also a first aid certificate holder,and has work based experience with child safeguarding..

Ivy Salvage


I was involved with Younger Generation right from the start when my work colleague Frank Graves wanted to set up a stage group for South London children to get the chance to actually perform on stage.

My first job was helping in the dressing rooms, then later organising the care in all the dressing rooms. 

All the matrons in charge had to have police permits and getting that sorted was quite a task.
My next job was to help the cast registrar but she gave up after a short while and I was invited to take over.  I have to say it was a most enjoyable job, getting to know the names of all the children was difficult - there were always a few whose names remained elusive!  

Carol Oseman

Health & Safeguarding Officer.

Carol's Daughter started YG in 2015 . She chaperoned backstage and has been involved ever since. She loves seeing the children grow in confidence and is proud of all of them when they walk on to stage . She was asked to join the YG committee and to become safeguarding officer. She looks forward to many years in the YG family.


Karen Joel

Chair / Web Admin

Karen got involved with YG. when her daughter became a member in 2013. She was impressed with the dedication and hard work put in by the organisers, and enjoyed watching her daughter's confidence in singing and dancing in front of an audience improve, as she stayed part of the cast for the next 9 years.


Karen has spent most of those years helping out making teas for the production team on a Sunday, and has taken part in the New Years Day Parade, In recent times she has been using her IT skills to update the club's website and social media presence.


Diane Rexstrew-Berry

Treasurer/Costume Supervisor

Diane first got involved with Y.G. when her niece Trudy, who is this year’s director, auditioned for the first show in 1989. Diane first started dancing at the age of five with the Doris Holford Stage School in Morden, where she passed many examinations with the N.A.T.D & I.S.T.D. Examination Boards.


In 2002 she organised a group from YG to take part in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Parade in The Mall. Costumes have now taken over her attic, front room and conservatory, in fact, her whole house is now one large storage area.
