Lyn Gardner announced as TheatreCraft ambassador1:15, 13th October 2017
London’s largest free careers event for young people in the market for off-stage theatre jobs, TheatreCraft, has announced its 2017 ambassador. Theatre journalist and critic Lyn Gardner will open the event, which will take place at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel in London on 3 November.
TheatreCraft is a free event for people aged 16–25, and enables them to participate in talks and workshops led by theatre professionals. Gardner described it as ‘a brilliant initiative because it opens doors and makes young people realise that working in theatre doesn’t just mean acting’.
She continued: ‘There are so many opportunities and careers available that don’t involve putting yourself centre stage, but which still require creativity, ingenuity and are just as much fun! TheatreCraft reminds us that there is a role for everyone in theatre, and we need people of many different talents and from many different backgrounds.’
