Today it’s National Freelancer Day! Like many industries the creative sector relies on talented and dedicated freelancers. Today at Theatr Brycheiniog we would like to acknowledge some of the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes by our freelance community. Liz Morrison, freelancer and owner of marketing and communications business Creative Solutions played her part in supporting Theatr Brycheiniog during the pandemic.
Hi Zoe! Thank you for taking the time to answer some questions for us! As you have been a massive part of the theatre over the years, we thought your insight would be interesting to our readers!
We have another blog entry! This week we have the lovely Hilary, Hilary is a massive part of our theatre as a board member. Hilary is a Theatre Professional with over 25 years of experience. Working at Oxford School of Drama and Bristol Old Vic as Arts Administrator for the Education and Outreach department, she then went onto run her own Company Myrtle Theatre. She now runs her own holiday let and works part–time in the Sustainable Tourism Department of the National Park and is a Park ambassador. We asked Hilary to tell us a little bit about herself and her involvement in Theatr Brycheiniog.
Designer Harry Pizzey has curated a wonderful installation in our auditorium space, depicting members from all the groups that use the Theatre, as our organisations and their members have been (and are) sorely missed. Harry’s drawings celebrate the wonderful people who make up the activities at Theatr Brycheiniog and we hope you enjoy this environment when you come and visit.
We have another show stopping blog entry! This week we have the amazing Katy Sinnadurai, Katy is a massive part of our theatre community. We asked Katy to tell us a little bit about herself, here is what she had to say!
In February we created a short film of a performancefor the Theatre, When The Night Fell - by local celebrated playwright Owen Thomas. When The Night Fell was performed by local actors Louise Collins & Gareth Bale. We would like to thank everyone involved in the performance and making it happen! It was truly incredible to have the energy or creatively on our stage again.
Owen Thomas, who wrote the breath taking piece let us into his thoughts behind the performance and shares some stories from working with the theatre.
We caught up with Punch Maughan just before the weekend, we asked her some questions about her time at Theatr Brycheiniog and ‘found’ out what she is up to now…
We have another lovely blog post for you! We would like to thank Rosie and Tin for their support, not only are they patrons of Theatr Brycheiniog but they are also regularly involved in many creative projects and classes. We asked them if they would answer some question for us and they were kind enough to give us such interesting and heartwarming responses.
I would lead social media posts with Meet Jo, she is part of our amazing box office team, she is currently Furloughed and spending some time in 2074 when she can, apparently everything is much better there.
