Rose gives it a Bash at Maltings Arts Theatre, St Albans

A NEW recruit has been acquired by Peppermint Muse Theatre Company which is putting on Neil LaBute’s Bash at the Maltings Arts Theatre in St Albans tomorrow and Saturday.

Rose Adolph approached the company via its website in search of theatre work upon returning to her home in St Albans after graduating earlier this year with a degree in theatre arts from Derby University.

She had been frantically writing to local and national theatres and companies since the summer and has worked as a stage electrician for the Barbican Theatre and the Gordon Craig Theatre and has stage management experience.

But Rose’s real passion lies in directing and she said: “I have been assistant director on a number of productions whilst at university and although I’ll do any technical job to be part of a theatre, I would love to direct my own show one day.

“Being part of the rehearsal process for Bash has been a great learning experience and, as a result of my input, I’ve been asked to assistant direct on the next production which is an incredibly exciting opportunity for me.”

Lisa White, artistic director of Peppermint Muse, commented: “We are thrilled to have Rose on board for Bash and our February show, Frozen, by Bryony Lavery. Nurturing new talent has always been an aim for us and we hope that this is the start of a long and successful career in theatre for Rose.”

Bash is being performed at 8pm both nights and tickets at �12.50/�7.50 are available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/ovo
