You’re new to the Leas Cliff Hall team; what attracted you to this role?
I’ve always loved theatre from a young age, my parents used to take me to see ‘Rod, Jane and Freddy’ in Canterbury every year so it’s a natural draw for me. It’s a pleasure to be working at Leas Cliff Hall and I’m already loving everything this venue and the team stand for.
What productions are you looking forward to?
I can’t wait to see Whitney – Queen of the Night, The Psychology Of Serial Killers with Jennifer Rees, and Beyond The Barricade. There’s such a diverse selection that caters to all tastes and that’s exciting.
Why is live entertainment important?
Live theatre and entertainment are crucial for so many reasons; whether you enjoy going to see a show by yourself or going with a group of friends, it can bring people together, help you reflect, and make you sing, dance or cry. Live entertainment harnesses real emotion and transforms it into something special that can’t be replicated.
