    Professional Recommendations

    Julia Wills Assistant Stage Manager

    I worked with Simon on an in-house production of 'Gypsy' at Curve Theatre during March 2012. Simon was a real pleasure to work with, always friendly and professional. I look forward to perhaps working with him in the future.

    Lucy Neale Assistant Stage Manager

    Simon Gillies was perfect as the Company Stage Manager, was friendly and outgoing but professional. Working with him was great as he taught me things I would never think of and also pushing me into challenging situations to gain more experience. Simon is very talented and knowledgable of every aspect of technical theatre. Working with Simon was an inspirtation to my life and my career. I hope to work with him again in the future and I would recommand him to anyone.
