My job is to shout from the rooftops. Come and see our play! Look what we’re doing! Grab your tickets before they’re all gone!
Which is pretty difficult, when you can’t tell anyone what your next play is.
You may have noticed that we’ve gone a little quiet on the Broadsides front. Especially after the flurry of excitement that came along with the Much Ado About Nothing Tour, it may seem like nothing is happening. But that couldn’t be much further than the truth; our small office team have our heads buried deep in Christmas and Spring 2020 mode (Christmas? In July?!). Nobody sees it, but this is where the magic really happens.
We throw out crazy ideas and see if anyone catches them. We discuss endless possibilities, the endless routes we could take to create a piece of compelling theatre. What will it look like? What will it sound like? What do we want to portray? Slowly we begin to form the vaguest outline of a plan and before you know it, your ideas are coming to life right in front of you.
Working with our new Artistic Director Laurie Sansom has been wonderful. He is ridiculously creative, so passionate about Northern Broadsides and has already come up with at least a million ideas on how we can develop the company. I can’t wait for you all to see what he comes up with.
Working in theatre marketing can truly mess with your perception of time; you’re always three steps ahead, planning for the next year, the next season, thinking about Christmas when Easter has only just been and gone.
What I can tell you, is that we had a very exciting photoshoot last week for our Spring 2020 production and I’m so excited to share the finished result with you all.
Trust me, it’ll be a good one.
