Whilst joining the company on tour in Newcastle this week, I met the very friendly and helpful Kirsten Dixon, Stage Door Keeper at the Theatre Royal. Kirsten was kind enough to talk to me about her role and what it is like working in the theatre.
I have been set the mission to give you all a behind the scenes glimpse into life on tour with Northern Ballet and as our Autumn season now starts its tour of the UK, Newcastle was the first destination on the tour. We are taking A Midsummer Night's Dream to Newcastle Theatre Royal from Tue 17 - Sat 21 Sep. I have never really been to Newcastle before so was looking forward to seeing a new city.
A question we are often asked is how do we choose the ballets which go on tour? Our Chief Executive, Mark Skipper DL, gives us an insight into the balancing act that is programming.
