It take an army…
We have a bAKEHOUSE closing night tradition. A shout out to absent friends and unsung heroes. Cause it takes an army to put on a show. And it takes a world of people to run a theatre. We’ve had incredible support this year from a heap of people, and we couldn’t do it without every one of you! But we’d like to acknowledge a couple in particular, two people who have stepped up this year and filled some pretty big gaps.
Charlie Vaux stepped in as KXT PRODUCTION INTERN earlier in the year and he’s helped us at bump ins, bump outs, key handovers, inductions, FOH, opening nights… an abundance of tedious tasks that keep things ticking over. Then, as Stage Manager on Dresden he had his hands full going from the rehearsal room, to set build, operating, and running the show. It was a baptism by fire (if you saw the show you’d appreciate that…!) and we couldn't have got the show on without him. He’ll be on occasional box office during the Storytellers Festival, if you see him say hi.
Rebecca Blake (Cub) is a member of the inaugural Step Up team. This year she stepped into the directors chair during the Step Up Festival, driving through an awesome development of Rotterdam by Jon Brittain, working with Ella Prince, Travis Jeffrey, Phoebe Lane and Bobby Jean Henning. We were excited to have her in as Assistant Director on our production of Dresden, after filling the AD role on the Brevity production of A Girl is Half Formed Thing
ANNOUNCING: Rebecca Blake is the KXT ARTISTIC ASSOCIATE.
We're thrilled to have Rebecca join the KXT Management team. Many hands make light work, and there's a lot going on at KXT: in the short few days she's been at the job, we've already seen the benefits of the shared load. She’s a keyboard warrior, getting the work done after hours when she’s done with the day job as Festival Co-Ordinator for Festival of Dangerous Ideas. Cub’s on the way up and we’re super excited to have her on the team
