Having appeared in 20 Lyric productions, from Macbeth,to Hello, Dolly!, to Shadow of a Gunman, BJ Hogg was not only a valiant, tenacious and talented actor, but he was a warm, humorous, generous gentleman and cherished figure at the Lyric. BJ Hogg’s legacy continues, as a fundraiser in his name was set up towards helping students at the Lyric Drama Studio. On Saturday, a cheque was made to help four students at our Drama Studio towards travel costs. These committed artists travel in, week after week from Coalisland, Enniskillen, Ballymena and the wider counties as part of their dedication towards professional Actor training. BJ Hogg’s legacy continues to inspire emerging artists to follow their dreams, and we at the Lyric are extremely grateful.
