Thank you Polly Hurd and our freelance artists

Thank you Polly Hurd and our freelance artists

Listed Under: News

As we are all aware, this year has been a difficult one for so many people. At Flying High, we have a huge number of freelance artists leading our workshops and unfortunately, we have been unable to engage their wonderful talents due to our numbers being halved now. So we would like to take this opportunity to say how much we have valued their contributions over the years.

We hope to be able to offer some work in the future as we move forward but for now, the Flying High Directors would like to thank Tash Bird, Emily Thurston and Kayley Arnold. We would also like to take this opportunity to particularly thank Polly Hurd, who has been working with the Intermediate Youth Theatre group and others before this for 17 years.

Polly has been wonderful in nurturing and supporting so many young people over the years. Her kind-hearted, inclusive approach has ensured that every individual in her groups has had opportunities to develop their own characters, double up on characters in a script so that they can all make a substantial contribution to the play. Polly has tirelessly written and re-written scripts to ensure that everyone is happy and comfortable with the end result.

We all hope that when we can, Polly will return so we can say a proper goodbye and thank you for all her hard work over the years. The Intermediate Youth Theatre group will most definitely miss her.
