    About me

    I currently work full time as Deputy Wardrobe Supervisor at the Octagon Theatre, Bolton. I have experience in supervising shows, costume sourcing, making (and breaking down) and hiring, plus looking after our extensive costume store. In addition I manage wardrobe during tech and dress on most shows at the theatre. I have experience with wigs, hair and special effects make-up.

    I also have experience in designing, mostly youth theatre shows and for students,

    I am creative, well organised and enthusiastic about working in theatre.

    As the Octagon is undergoing an extensive refurbishment over the next year I am looking at potential opportunities to take a sabbatical in the new year.
