Anna Hale

Director Oxfordshire

I knew I wanted to direct the moment I managed to successfully recreate Greased Lightnin' out of four plastic chairs, a roll of clingfilm and a MarioKart wheel. Since then, my interests have turned particularly to the creation of new musicals, and I have enjoyed the organisation and attention to detail that was required of me as an assistant director.

I am interested in working with storytellers, collaborators and a limited set budget.
