Edward Quekett
Edward Quekett
Welfare Officer & Stage Manager
Edward Quekett is about to begin his third and final year of Art History at Trinity Hall. As the technical director and lighting designer of this year's tour, he is very much excited at the prospect of touring Japan - something that has appealed to him for quite a long time. He has been involved in a number of shows before this in a variety of roles (principally as Lighting Designer, Publicity Designer, Set Designer, or Technical Director) but never on a show quite as large as this. A keen interest backstage led him this far, and he hopes this prior experience will let his role proceed without too much drama while on tour!
