The Creation & Inspiration
My name is Natasha Mould and the journey creating this show only began in October 2020!
I am a musical theatre performer and choreographer who has always dreamed of creating a show. However, with little experience on this side of the stage (or time spare) it was something I knew was for later in my career. Due to the affect COVID-19 had on the arts throughout 2020 and my own unemployment, it made me even more passionate about producing and creating a work opportunity for some of the most talented people I know who were in the same position I was.
The inspiration for this show comes from my own pandemic carer shift. In early March 2020, when lockdown began and curtains closed, I immediately acquired a full time job in a local community care role. I switched bright lights around mirrors and standing ovations for unkempt ground floor flats and wiping bums. In all honesty … I loved it. After nine months of being a full-time carer of the elderly I decided the story of theatre workers in 2020 must be told. I spoke with friends and found inspiration in their endeavours into new and highly altered lifestyles like my own. I took those stories and did what us ‘stagey’ lot do best – Make a song and dance out of it!
