HotHouse Theatre’s Associate Director, Travis Dowling worked with students and teachers from Xavier High school to better understand, contextualise and enliven Shakespeare’s plays. Our students also had the opportunity to work with HotHouse Theatre’s Operations Manager, Rob Scott, to experience the technical side of the trade, learning stage management, technical operation and back stage protocol.
