"For the past six years I have had the great pleasure of working with Dai Bassett. As the artistic director for the Stone Fence Theatre I got to know Dai and his many talents very well. Working on any project that Dai was involved in meant that the process would move ahead easily- you could count on Dai’s commitment and total involvement in both rehearsal and performance. As a stage personality Dai is very versatile: he can “clown”, and always gets the most out of any comic part. Conversely, in a serious role he shows sensitivity that makes the character believable. As a master of ceremonies, Dai has a natural talent for putting the audience at ease and always finds a way to connect with the crowd. We have worked together in a lot of musical theatre. Dai has a wonderful voice, and in either solo or chorus, he makes every song sound great. A commanding stage presence, a multi talented performer, a man who takes his commitment to every performance seriously, that describes the Dai Bassett I have come to know." - Barry Goldie
