Professional Recommendations

    Sherry was the Lighting Designer for a recent tour of ours, England, Arise! The tour was a particular challenge as it went to a range of traditional venues (e.g. The Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield) and non-theatre spaces (e.g. the People's History Museum in Manchester). Sherry created a wonderful design that could be adapted to a variety of spaces, to great effect. Sherry was a pleasure to work alongside, having a sensitive and creative approach to the work and going above and beyond to support the work well into the tour.

    Sherry designed the lighting for my recent production of The Shakespeare Conspiracy, and her work was to an extremely high standard - she worked effectively with a limited rig, offering a full, detailed and beautiful lighting design. A very talented designer, as well as exceptionally practically able, Sherry was a joy to work with and a true professional - highly recommended!
