Of all Shakespeare’s major tragedies, Othello is one of the least staged in Australia. You might be lucky to see a professional production of this tale.
Travel management that’s unplugged and personal
Rehearsing and preparing for a tour or theatre season is hard enough, without having to think about the travel logistics. Fortunately the team at Stage and Screen get a buzz from planning, booking and costing complex itineraries. So while you concentrate on connecting to your audience, we’ll concentrate on the connecting flights, accommodation budgets and the band’s mini bus hire.
