Erin Read - Associate Director


We are delighted to announce the appointment of Erin Read in the newly created role of Associate Director.

Supporting the Artistic Director, Erin’s role as Associate Director will see her take more of an enhanced creative and consulting role within the company and will be responsible for directing and producing future projects. 

Erin moved to London to pursue a career in acting and to begin studying drama at Queen Mary University of London. Roles include the short films 'Unforgettable', 'Performance' ‘The Straggler’ and the award winning ‘Extra Time’ (2015).

Her passion for acting music, singing and dancing has led her to explore every part of the theatre.  In 2015, she was the Assistant Musical Director for ‘The King and I’ (The Riverhead Theatre) and ‘Oliver’ (The Embassy Theatre) and she assisted with the singing coaching and acted in productions of ‘Fame’ and ‘Footloose’ (2011 & 2012 respectively) at The Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent.

For Proforca Theatre Company, Erin was Musical Director / Assistant Director for "Saucy Jack & The Space Vixens" (Nov 2016) and Producer for the workshop productions of "Feel" (2017) and Producer for "The Ballad of Reading Gaol" (Nov 2017). Her acting roles also include “Cecily” in our production of “The Importance of Being Earnest” (Sept 2017)

Erin has been a massive and important part of our projects and the Proforça journey over the last two years and we can’t wait to see what comes of her work for the company in the future. 

Look out for details of Erin’s next Proforça project in the coming days with an announcement to follow very shortly. Congratulations Erin!
