Touring Diary!

The Reluctant Dragon Tour is well underway!

We have had the pleasure of visiting some lovely venues over the past week, and it has been great performing to so many people! We have had a huge amount of support so far, and so many kind words about our show, so we are massivley grateful to everyone who has come to watch!

Its been a tough week too, especially when battling the elements. It is certainly an experience that we are all learing a lot from already, developing new skills for the future. We are really getting an appetite for the industry!

It is also wonderful to be working with such a great group of people who I am lucky to also call my friends. Their humor and their wisdom are integral to keeping the tour on the road! Links to their websites are below:

After 3 years, I have graduated from the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David!

I have been very fortunate to be graduating with a 2:1 classification, with B.A. (Hons) in Acting.

It has been a wonderful three years at the university, and I have enjoyed every single second. I have learnt a lot from my experiences, and have learnt plenty of things that will hopefully help me in my career as an actor.

I have met and worked with so many wonderful, talented and supportive people, and I am so very lucky to be able to call them my friends. They have been a pleasure to work with, and have been great fun when the work had finished! Not only those who were on the same course and year as myself, but I am grateful for everyone I have been friends with across all the year groups and courses.

I have also been very lucky to work with some wonderful lecturers and directors, who have taught me so much too. I am also so very grateful to them for investing so much of their time and making such an effort with their students. We certainly could never have done it without them!

I have been very fortunate to have a very supportive family too, who have been there for everything that I’ve done; watching shows, helping with the website, emotional support and making jokes at my expense!

To everyone, thank you for everything, and I wish you all the best in the future! It has been an honour!
