St Mary's Youth Theatre has had members from far and wide but Yui Suzuki holds the distance record by far. She joined SMYT in May after enroling at the Leeds College of Music to study Performing Arts. Yui is from Tokyo in Japan and has come to Leeds to enhance her chances of becoming a musical star back home. She met a boy in her 2nd year at Senior High School who was a young rising star in Musical Theatre who told her how wonderful it was to appear in Musicals. He said his dream was to play Marius in Les Miserables, a dream which has now been fulfilled. Inspired by this Yui decided to study in the UK to gain experience of life abroad and to learn to be strong morally.
She said " There's nothing that I can't do if I try really hard"

Yui is appearing in SMYT's production of We Will Rock You which is being performed at the Carriageworks, Leeds at the end of November. Tickets are now on sale.
