Meet the 2017 Industry Placement graduates!

Each year, four graduating BAMT students are chosen to take up the Harvest Rain Industry Placement - A year of professional employment with Harvest Rain Theatre Company.

A huge congratulations to our 2016 BAMT graduates (in order of photo) Laura Bamford, Ellen Tuffley, Samantha Paterson and Lauren Conway who, after a year touring the country as Dance Captains with HAIRSPRAY : The Arena Spectacular, have been chosen by Harvest Rain CEO Tim O'Connor and Director / Choreographer Callum Mansfield for Harvest Rain's year-long professional industry placement in 2017.

Harvest Rain's Industry Placement year will see all four of these graduates work professionally for the company in 2017, putting the skills they have acquired at BAMT into practice across various on-stage and behind-the-sceenes roles. In 2017 Laura, Ellen, Samantha and Lauren will be employed to work on the Harvest Rain's national touring production of GREASE : The Arena Experience.

"As I always say, BAMT graduates are among the best in the country," says Harvest Rain CEO Tim O'Connor. "In class I was always impressed by the girl's level of professionalism and determination to improve, but after finally seeing them in action as Dance Captains in HAIRSPRAY : The Arena Spectacular it was a no brainer. Callum and I are thrilled to offer Laura, Ellen, Samantha and Lauren the opportunity to work with Harvest Rain in 2017."

Congratulations again, Laura, Ellen, Samantha and Lauren. We look forward to following your professional careers at Harvest Rain!
