Heather Matthews is the Artistic Director and founder of Northeast Producers Traveling Theatre Company.
Several Years ago after graduating with a BA Hons in Performance and winning a place on Northumberland Theatre Company’s prestigious performance course ‘InterAct’, Heather believed there was an opportunity in the market for a new, innovative touring Theatre Company in Northeast England. The aim was to produce consistently high quality theatre that is accessible for all.
Heather has directed all but one of Northeast Producers productions; all of which have had great success. Heather’s style of direction focuses on the actor’s ability to engage the audience, without relying on elaborate sets, costume and lighting. The actor’s ability to engage and interact with our audience is at the heart of all of our performance’s and Northeast Producers choice of scripts always allow for audience involvement.
Also a freelance director, Heather has directed numerous productions for other companies as well as co-directing a feature length film.
Heather co-ordinates all of Northeast Producers productions and is committed to making theatre more accessible to all and ensures that all of our productions are filled with energy, laughter and most importantly opportunities for the different audiences to get involved.
