CD: Who do you think could benefit from taking part in a showcase?
NB: Drama school graduates or anyone who is trying to get back into the industry. It’s a great way to showcase your talent.
CD: What was the highlight for you?

NB: It has given me new contacts in the industry and made me aware of other upcoming productions through social media.
CD: What were the most important things you got from being a part of the showcase experience?
