At the moment you are...
I am currently on a Stage One Producer Placement at Mark Rubinstein Ltd. Since being at MRL, I have worked on the Pre-Production of School of Rock (New London Theatre); Beautiful; The Carole King Musical (Aldwych Theatre); The Dresser (Duke of York's) and a new show currently in development.
What does Stage One mean to you?
Not only have I met some great people since working with stage one; they have also been a fantastic support to me over the last year. They have given me the opportunity to be able to pursue my career on a full time basis and provide me with a fountain of knowledge from industry professionals. Stage one is not only a great support network, it's like a little family that give you a great springboard into the commercial world.
Last show you saw and loved?
Now, I'm not just saying this because it's one of Mark's shows but I can honestly say it has to be La Soiree. I left on such a high; it's a great night of entertainment, such talented acts with a real sense of class.
What do you think, is the best thing about the Theatre Industry?
The best thing about the Theatre industry for me is; it feels like you are constantly riding a motorcycle at full speed, there’s always a sense of excitement and adrenaline. No day is ever the same and everyone is working towards that same end goal of creating a piece that entertains audiences
What's the best piece of advice you've been given?
Leave them wanting more. There's a fine line between class and overindulgence. If you have something good show it off but don't overdo it!
