‘I’m the spirit of Everyman from the Common Man to the King,
I’m the Jack of All Trades who has trodden the boards
and worked behind the scenes.
From the portico to the paint-frame, I have always been here,
I’ve seen it all because I am it all, in this temple of a thousand dreams!’
Tread the boards and see behind the scenes!
