Rebecca Bloom
Core Company Member and Associate Director

Rebecca has been with TWTC since it began back in 2006. She has seen the company grow and develop to what it has become to today. She particularly enjoys the work she does for TWTC, as it’s an interactive experience, making each show very different. Although her training covered all aspects of theatre, she was drawn to children’s theatre and trained in clowning and physical theatre over in America, where she worked alongside an internationally known clown. From White Rabbit to Feisty Fanny, she has great fun with all the roles she takes on board for TWTC, including in the office as Associate Director!
