HEATHER FULTON - Artistic Director

 

Heather has been directing award winning children’s theatre based in Scotland for the last 12 years.  As a trainee director with Imaginate, she had the opportunity to see some of the best children’s theatre from all over the world, and the chance to be involved in inspiring rehearsal processes. This gave her a great grounding to run Complete Productions in 2006 and to create her first show Moussa’s Castle. In 2010 Complete Productions became Frozen Charlotte, with Brenda Murphy joining Heather as Co-Artistic Director.

Heather’s favourite occupation is being in the rehearsal room with her creative team collaboratively devising projects which are fun, light, poignant and surprising. She considers the growing band of associate artists one of the main assets of the company, and she would love to make a big version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe -  a celebratory production that would involve all the artists who have contributed to Frozen Charlotte’s success.

Hazel Darwin-Clements

 

Hazel is a performer and theatre maker who has been lucky enough to work for Frozen Charlotte several times- including an exciting adventure to Brunei in 2012, performing a beautiful show called Sense at the Imaginate festival, and the odd bit of pirating and working with live donkeys! She enjoys performing for all ages but has made several shows for wee ones (and even little babies) with Starcatchers  including Hup, The Attic, Too Many Cooks and Round in Circles. Her main interests are acting and puppetry but she has been known to turn her hand to photography, prop making, song writing, costume sourcing, workshop-leading and directing.

 

 Nicola Jo Cully

 

Nicola Jo was part of the original Too Many Penguins? cast and helped to devise this CATS (Critics’ Award for Theatre in Scotland) award winning show with the rest of the company. She has been delighted to tour this show across the UK as well as Europe and Hong Kong.

Nicola Jo also recorded a short film for Frozen Charlotte's production of The Library, and hopes to collaborate on many more projects with Frozen Charlotte.

Rosie Gibson

 

Rosie feels a bit like a moon of Planet Frozen Charlotte, orbiting since the early days of Moussa’s Castle. From her viewpoint, she sees a company which has created captivating and life affirming work, particularly for young children and their parents/carers. As an associate artist she is looking forward to the next phase of great work, which will build on the experiences and relationships gained through dedication and a love of life.
