    Additional Information

    The roles within costume make productions visually magical to the audience. Without costumes the visual impact to the audience is lost, but so is the audience being able to recognise the character each actor is portraying. The smooth running behind the scenes of the production is key to creating a magical show for the audience. This is why Costume can be described as something magical.

    About me

    I have enjoyed working in theatre for over 5 years on tours in the UK and Ireland. My previous credits include Firedance UK tour, The Grinch who stole Christmas UK tour, Grease UK and ireland tour, Saturday Night Fever UK and Ireland tour plus many more. My roles have included Head and Deputy Head of Wardrobe. I have worked from pre-production and enjoy all aspects of starting up a new show as well as joining one already running. I enjoy every moment working backstage and being part of a spectacular show.
