09 Aug Welcome our new Executive Creative Producer
Theatre Company Blah Blah Blah (the Blahs) are incredibly pleased to announce that Iain Bloomfield will be joining the company from September as Executive Creative Producer.
The Executive Creative Producer is a new role for the Blahs designed to reflect the needs of the company in the next exciting phase of our development and our mission to deliver high quality creative experiences with and for children and young people. Iain will takeover leadership from our current Artistic Director Deborah Pakkar-Hull, who will step down in December 2021.
The Board of Trustees would like to acknowledge the incredible work Deborah has done leading the Blahs for the last 7 years. We are delighted that she will be maintaining a strong connection to the Blahs, joining our wider team of Associates and directing a number of new shows for the company in the coming years.
Iain brings a wealth of passion and experience including as one of the founders of Proper Job Theatre, Artistic Director of Theatre in the Mill for fourteen years and a host of national and international directing credits. Iain said “I look forward to joining the Blah’s at such a pivotal point in their existence, the company have a magnificent history and Deborah Pakkar-Hull has both made wonderful work and explored new ways for the company to engage with young audiences. I’m very excited at the prospect of working with brilliant artists from around the region and beyond, in partnership with young people, to explore what deep-diving theatre projects for and with children and young people can look like in the C21st.”
Jane Storr, Chair of our Board of Trustees said, “The Trustees are thrilled to welcome Iain to the Theatre Company Blah Blah Blah team. He brings a passion for developing the creativity of children and young people, a commitment to exploring the diverse stories of all the communities we serve, and an expertise in empowering children and artists through a range of partnerships. His vision, skills and experience is a perfect fit with the company and we’re delighted to have him on board.”
