I’ve been working on some lovely projects recently. Myself and James Ross are musical directors of a project called_ All Hands in The Beacon Arts Centre_ in Greenock. Check out this gorgeous venue if you can.
In March we loaded up the sherry glasses and went to India. One of the shows we performed opened the META (Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards)in New Delhi. Many thanks to Teamworks Arts and Creative Scotland for making this happen.
This June we were commissioned by_ The Festival and Kings Theatre, Edinburgh_ to do a three week tour of Step Into My Parlour for their dementia friendly programme. This has been a highlight for me. We met some of the nicest people on this project and The Festival Theatre are doing fantastic work for people living with dementia.
Have a lovely weekend,
Take care, Michelle x
