David Wood's Articles

Occasionally I get asked to write an article for a magazine or newspaper. 

Sometimes I think they might be worthy of exposure on the website! 

Here are some ......

Encore Mgazine

In early 2007 ENCORE magazine edited by Peter G. Foot, asked me to contribute a series of articles about children's theatre.

This magazine is aimed at the theatre industry, with particular reference to regional theatres, many of which take in all kinds of popular theatre productions, concerts, one night stands etc. Children's theatre very often gets left out of this kind of magazine, so I was glad to oblige. Each article will be posted on the website as soon as it has been published in the magazine.
