Prior to the superb production of 'The Canterbury Tales' students and parents had the fantastic opportunity to hear from two successful women working in the theatre world at
our ‘Careers in the Arts’ Aspire event. Cassie Friend, who is the
co-founder and Co-Artistic Director of RedCape Theatre, and Jessica Campbell,
head of marketing and Producer at Theatre503 in London. Both gave a
fascinating and witty insight into careers in the arts and the variety of
different opportunities open to those who may be interested in working in
theatre, both as performers and also in producing and directing. There
was plenty of inspiration, as both Cassie and Jessica spoke of times that may
have seemed a regret leading to very positive opportunities, as well as
the importance of seeing theatre and supporting your local arts community.
We thank both Cassie and Jessica for their time, expertise and passion; there
are no doubts that the girls (and parents!) learned a lot!
