What I Go To School For follows a group of teenagers living in a world that just doesn’t understand them. Desperate to escape their humdrum hometown, they soon discover the need to break the rules to found out who they really are.
As assistant designer on this new musical I worked with 40 young actors aged 13-20 for a 3 week intensive rehearsal, make and build period.  Modelmaking, prop and costume sourcing, and photoshop designing graphics and logos to indicate the setting of scenes.
