A huge thank you to Steve Ball, Artistic Director at The REP, for a fascinating backstage tour and for giving us an insight into the broad range of work that the theatre undertakes. Not only did we go behind the scenes in the costume, wig, scene painting and set building departments, but Steve also took us backstage of The HOUSE, The Door, and the Youth Theatre, where actors and directors happily stopped their rehearsals for that night’s performances to talk to us and tell us about their work.
