Flossie Waite, Editor
It’s safe to say that the Christmas of ’92 – when 23-month-old me was taken to 22 productions – marked the beginning of my love for children’s theatre. Over twenty years after this introduction, I’m keen to share how exciting, innovative, inspiring, original and truly magical so much of theatre for young audiences is.
I work with children’s theatre company, Page One. I completed an MPhil in Children’s Literature, with a thesis exploring why children’s theatre isn’t taken seriously in academia. I have also worked as a drama workshop assistant at Polka Theatre, and gained experience at Sonia Friedman Productions and Mousetrap Theatre Projects. I was formerly the editor of artsawardvoice.com, an online magazine created by young people, for young people interested in the arts. My writing on theatre for young audiences has also appeared in Children’s Theatre Magazine and Theatre & Performance Guide & Guru Magazine (both online and in print).
