Last week saw the company return to f h space in Forest Hill to begin rehearsals for the remount of On the Beach. Following a successful run in 2023, the show is back with some new faces and some familiar faces. 

Kali Chandrasegaram and Sophie Holland have both returned to their former roles as performers, and have been busy reconnecting with the ropes and sails. Alongside existing Director, Rebecca Manson Jones, and Designer, Jens Demant Cole, was a host of new faces: Pia Richards Glöckner has joined the team as Touring & Participation Director (and if you're very lucky you may catch them stepping into costume!); T Harris is the Technical Stage Manager; Nur Khairiyah is our fabulous Touring Producer; Crin Claxton is the Production Manager; and Lara Marshall returned as Access Support. We also had visits from previous Producer, Claude Graham, and costume maker, Alice Kristina Rose!
