Prepping for Theatre

When we think of doctors, we tend to think clinical, dry…dare we say, boring? Dr Lane, armed with his affable charm, outstanding vocal talent and irrefutable penchant for penning sensational songs, defies expectations! He recounts the story of how he, as a young boy plagued with anxiety, found success as both a GP and musician.
