Creative Internships Blog Week 19

Nathan McCarthy, Sherman Theatre

Returning to work after the Christmas break, we have been busy preparing to open our spring season programme. One of the best things about working in a theatre like the Sherman, is that you get to experience such a wide range of shows and get to meet a whole host of casts and creative teams. There is already a real sense of excitement around preparations for two of our upcoming productions: Killology, our co-production with Royal Court Theatre, and our community production Love, Cardiff - A City Road Story which has been supported by the Heritage Lottery fund.

The main focus of my workload has continued to be the creation of a guest list for all upcoming Sherman events. I would say it is almost finished but, as a guest list it will always be a working document, to be added to and updated. I am also starting to help collate information for reporting to funders who helped to support some of the projects that took place around our Christmas productions.

Before Christmas I met again with my Business Mentor’s colleague Sandie, for a one to one session on public speaking and presentation skills. In January, I attended the first Cardiff Business Club event of the New Year held at the Hilton Hotel. The speaker at the event was Aileen Richards, the first woman on the board of the WRU, and it was really interesting to hear about the wealth of experience she has gained from working all around the world.
