    Professional Recommendations

    Kathryn Rosendale Deputy Stage Manager

    Dawn is a hard working and dedicated professional. Her prop making skills are a very high standard in design, construction and finish. She is a great person to have on the team and can and will turn her hand to anything that needs doing and is keen to keep developing skills through further work. I'm looking forward to working with her again.
