We are delighted to announce Heidi Vaughan as Kazzum’s New Artistic Director!
Heidi’s previous roles include being Artistic Director of her own company for young audiences, Dot & Ethel, Head of Learning at Oxford Playhouse, Director of Young People’s Theatre at The Point, Eastleigh, as well as freelance directing and managerial roles at the Egg, Nuffield Theatre Southampton, Oxford School of Drama, Bristol Old Vic, and the Sherman Cardiff.
Heidi says “Kazzum is a forward facing company with over 25 years’ experience. Making playful work in unusual places, it has creativity, inclusion, innovation and quality embedded in its daily practice. I have been astonished by the depth and breadth of work it produces; investing in those with fewer opportunities and making a spectrum of work in unexpected and innovative spaces. On a regional, national and international level Kazzum is making huge steps within the children’s theatre sector. I am thrilled to be working with the team at Kazzum, and alongside the rich and diverse artists, as well as the young people who remain the real heartbeat of this organisation.’
The Kazzum team are really excited to welcome her to Kazzum HQ!
