A major part of the Stages of Half Moon project has been talking to some of the people who have been involved with Half Moon over the years in various capacities – artistic, backstage, administrative, as an audience member, or youth participant.
We have filmed over 100 people – and spoken to many more – and it has been a privilege to meet so many lovely people from across the decades and hear an eclectic range of personal memories.
Our young people were in charge of conducting the interviews and relished the opportunity to hear some truly remarkable stories from people about their involvement with the company since 1972.
Toni Tsaera, who conducted a large number of the interviews said of the experience: “I’m amazed that I had a chance to interview all these brilliant people! I found it very inspirational when interviewing.”
A huge thank you to everyone who agreed to share their memories:
