Greetings from the Artistic Director
by Paula Garfield

Hello! Festive greetings to you all. Christmas is fast approaching and this signals for us, the end of an amazing year in 2014 the highlight of which has to be performing at Shakespeare's Globe with our successful production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". It had great ticket sales, was well received by the audiences who loved the production and all the cast and crew were amazing. A big THANK YOU to all the actors involved, as without you, it wouldn't have been such a great success so thanks to the actors.

Also, this year, we are very proud of the Hub programme for Actors and Writers. For the Actors group, we run workshops to develop a variety of skills led by experienced theatre industry professionals. Similarly for the Writers group, we have a range of professionals involved leading sessions on writing theory and practice to develop the skills of the group.

You may be wondering what I've been up to this year? Well, I've been very busy travelling around the UK meeting various theatre companies and venues to establish relationship with theme bout Deafinitely Theatre and our work. Some of these were aware of us, and some weren't so it was a great opportunity to explain about who we are and what we do. I hope that these meetings will lead to future working opportunities for us.

I know that 2015 will be an exciting and busy year for us all. There are already lots of projects in the pipeline with schedules planned but I'm not going to reveal any more than that yet! We will let you all know soon.

Happy Christmas and a very Happy New Year! We are looking forward to seeing you all again in 2015. Bye!
