Draya’s been a busy bee (or should I say fairy?) this week, getting crafty with our previously mentioned goodies from the Scrapstore and creating some prototype decorations for the RSC Dream Team production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream taking place here in June. So far she’s made flowers and lanterns, and she’ll be off on a fairy light hunt sometime soon. She also might be able to reuse some of the lovely foyer decorations we had up during Sleeping Beauty last Christmas, which I'm sure will make us both super nostalgic about our first two weeks here (and we know it's only been four months since then, but what can I say? We're soppy people).
Up in the admin office, I’ve been helping Emma work on the programme for our next co-production, Folk, opening at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre on the 14th April and then coming to Truck on the 3rd May. Speaking of Folk, there may be some fancy dress flyering required for me and Draya sometime in the next few weeks, so watch this space...
In other show-related news, Invincible begins its two-day run tomorrow, and our very own 14-16 Youth Theatre group open their show Multiplex on Thursday. We’ll be seeing both shows (and you should too!) so we’ll have loads to report on them next week.
Congratulations are in order to our colleague Donald, for recently becoming Hull Truck’s first qualified apprentice. The four of us Hull Training babies are looking forward to following in his footsteps at the end of this year!
We’ve got some exciting job opportunities on the website at the moment, too. As part of the Grow festival, we’re looking for budding photographers looking to expand their live events portfolio. More information can be found here but the deadline is Wednesday, so be speedy about it if you’re interested! We’re also looking for a new Deputy Box Office Manager. Aimee, the current holder of this position, is leaving Truck at the end of this month after 11 great years here. We’ll all be sad to see her go, but we wish her the best of luck in her new endeavours!
Sam & Draya :)
