At the end of April, we bid a fond farewell to Associate Producer Amy Fisher. Joining us through the BBC Performing Arts Fund back in 2015, Amy has been an instrumental member of the team over the last three years, producing acclaimed productions and remounts of PLASTIC FIGURINES, NARVIK and CHIP SHOP CHIPS. Amy joined Northern Stage as Associate Producer and is now heading to the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough to become their Creative Producer next month.
“Working with Box of Tricks Theatre pretty much taught me everything I know about producing and over the three years I was able to grow with the company as the scale of the work increased. I’m so grateful to Adam and Hannah for all of their support and so proud of the shows I made with Box of Tricks. I look forward to continuing the relationship with the company for many years to come.”
