Welcome to a new series on the AF blog, where we talk to theatre industry professionals to find out more about their jobs. Everyone knows what an actor does, but it takes a lot more than just the people on stage to make a show. Please join us as we quiz people in all sorts of cool theatre jobs on their work, what it involves, and how you could do the same. Our first point of call is Daniel Goldman, artistic director of CASA, London’s only Latin American theatre festival.
We recently took a look at some of the best known drama schools in London and what their specialties are. Although many of the UK’s top schools are in the capital, there are quite a few outside of London that are worth considering as well. Please join us for a trip around the country!
