Meet the Darlington College Reporters!

Meet the Darlington College Reporters!

Friday, 7 November 2014

We have teamed up with Darlington College to give nine of their journalism students the opportunity to report on all things Regeneration, during the week the show hits the Civic theatre. Let's meet them...



Nine journalism students will be joining the Theatre Cloud Young Reporters scheme next week to cover lots of different topics, interviews and news during the week Regeneration plays at the Civic theatre.

Look out for special Spotlight On interviews by David Huntley, Mandi Bishop and Laura Lennon. 

Amy Holmes will be talking to Regeneration cast members, David Morley Hale, Josh Higgott and Simon Coates on the challenges of playing multiple roles.

Want to read about Darlington in WW1? Then keep your eyes peeled for James Bolton, Michael Hoyle, Peter Mann and Karl Simmonds collective article.

Ian Hamilton gives us his observations of one of the Touring Consortium Theatre Company's Page to Stage workshops plus writes a biography of Regeneration author, Pat Barker.

All nine of the reporters will also be sharing their reviews and blogs on the production, Regeneration, which they will see on opening night next Tuesday.

So do check back on what these emerging journos have been up to by logging on to Theatre Cloud next week!
