Meet Darlington's young reporter: Rebecca Parkinson

Meet Darlington's young reporter: Rebecca Parkinson

Tuesday, 17 March 2015

Meet Rebecca Parkinson, the latest recruit for our young reporter scheme. She'll be reporting from the Darlington Civic Theatre and getting behind the scenes access to A View from the Bridge which is playing there all week.


Rebecca is 17 years old and applied to the scheme because of her strong interest in journalism and a desire to further her career in the future with a national or regional newspaper. Rebecca is currently at college studying Journalism and PR and is a keen blogger with an interest in theatre.

As part of our scheme, Rebecca will be attending the opening night of A View from the Bridge and get experience in writing a first night report, she'll get to meet the cast and will also be finding out what the future holds for the Civic Theatre in the coming years. 

I would like to get some experience for theatre reporting. I am very passionate about journalism, watching theatre productions and writing reviews for theatrical performances. 
Rebecca Parkinson, Darlington Young Reporter
