On Wednesday I was at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon to help with Ian Wainwright’s induction. Ian is the new ‘Open Stages Producer’, appointed to co-ordinate the ‘Open Stages’ pro-am strand of the 2012 World Shakespeare Festival that Voluntary Arts has been developing with the RSC. Ian was previously Director of Education at Bristol Old Vic and has fifteen years experience leading the education teams of regional theatres including the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough and the Watford Palace Theatre. He has also been a Board member of the National Association of Youth Theatres. Ian will be attached to the Open Stages project until its completion in December 2012. He will shortly be setting up a series of meetings with the main amateur theatre umbrella bodies to discuss the details of the Open Stages project.

Robin Simpson.
