Last year I studied lighting design and stage management. This gave me many opportunities to work back stage on many of the performances on at uni. It also gave me the opportunity to work as a lighting designer for a play at the Battersea Arts Centre and I also worked as the pyrotechnician and as part of the production team for the community project last year. Helios a 3rd year drama in the community project gave me an incredible insight into the course. What was truly amazing about the project was how many people it encompassed and how much experience was gained by each member of the project. Although there were many people involved in the project and some might think this would cause arguments, the group came together as a real community and missed the project so much once it was finished.

I am so excited about Drama in the Community! I would really love to work in a big group for the project. There are both pros and cons to working in a big group and I here are a few pros....
If someone doesn't turn up to a rehearsal or meeting then its not as big of a loss as working in a smaller group because there will always be people to pick up the slack,
you can bounce ideas off of people all the time
we will effectively be working as a 'professional' company so there will be more chances for sponsorship which means MONEY which means extra special things to do....for example pyrotechnics!
It also means we get to work on a much bigger scales so more people from the community can become involved.
