Former Stratford College student turns RSC apprentice

Stratford Editorial 14th Mar, 2024   0

ALL the world’s a stage for a former Stratford College student who now has an apprenticeship with the RSC.

Liv Creed, who studied graphic design, is now a stage and props apprentice at the world-famous theatre.

The 18-year-old, from Gaydon, began her creative journey by studying graphic design at GCSE and decided to continue her studies at college.

She said: “I knew I was passionate about graphic design and couldn’t think of another three subjects to study (which is required at A-Level) so college allowed me to focus all my time on the one subject.

“I really enjoyed how diverse the course was and how you could tailor the course to suit your interest. I always have had a passion for theatre but knew I didn’t want to pursue acting as a career, but liked the idea of finding work in that kind of environment. I focused a lot on using what I had learnt and applying it to set design.”

Liv continued: “I love how every day is completely different, one day I’m building set, the next day working on a show opening traps for people to ‘fall’ into. I work on a whole range of areas. I’ve learnt about sustainability, health and safety, stage craft, time management, problem solving, communication and budget management plus I learn from many departments including about lighting, sound, video, automation, stage and props. I also have had chance to travel to other venues in the country including London for shows such as Cowbois and My Neighbour Totoro.”
