Andrew began his career as Producing Assistant with Punchdrunk, originally appointed through the inaugural year of the DCMS Jerwood Creative Bursaries programme, and went on to work with international touring company Blind Summit, independent Producer Vicky Graham and multi-disciplinary arts organisation Siobhan Davies Dance. As an independent Producer he most recently developed and produced Ross & Rachel by Olivier nominee James Fritz, which enjoyed a critically acclaimed, award-winning run at the Edinburgh Festival, a New York transfer and two subsequent UK tours.
Andrew Hughes said, “I’m so looking forward to joining Richard, Sophie and the whole ETT team during this exciting new chapter in the company’s history. Meeting diverse audiences across the country and beyond with thrilling, bold and challenging theatre feels more important as ever in an increasingly divided and politically complex 2018 UK.”
Richard Twyman, Artistic Director of English Touring Theatre said, “We’re delighted that Andrew will be joining the team at ETT. He brings with him a breadth of experience in some of the country’s leading companies whilst also being an exciting producer in his own right. As we celebrate ETT’s 25 year commitment to touring, Andrew’s energy and expertise will be invaluable.”
