Graduate secures role at Royal Shakespeare Company

Becky Salt, Theatre and Performance graduate, is now working with the Royal Shakespeare Company as a Creative Associate on their touring production of Twelfth Night.

Royal Shakespeare Company First Encounters productions are created to give 7-13 year olds a fantastic first experience of Shakespeare whilst also being an excellent introduction for anyone new to his work. Using edited versions of the original language, they bring the plays to life on stage in just 90 minutes. 

As the tour moves around the country, Becky will be responsible for directing and rehearsing the young company who join the professional cast at each venue. When asked about the experience, Becky responded “It’s been a fantastic and enriching opportunity to work amongst the creative team in rehearsals, bringing this hilarious and heartwarming story to inspire new young audiences to the magic of Shakespeare.”

The tour of Twelfth Night runs until 12th November, for more information visit
