MELANIE WHITEHEAD

I am an independent theatre-maker with connections from years of working for large-scale theatre companies; interested in the regenerative power of the arts including how participatory work can affect individual and social change, specialism of working with young people. After a period of market research, I set up  The Electric Sunshine Project and have, to date, created four projects under that banner including a modern monologue of Shakespeare's Macbeth; Grouch, a full-length play that looks at the impact of addiction; Better to Have Loved...?, a new style puppet show; The Diabolical Mr Punch, a regular scratch night aimed at showcasing local talent; Scratch South Shore.

I genuinely feel that the best creativity comes through collaboration and I'm relatively new to the Blackpool area so still up for cups of tea and bits of cake to talk about ideas, concepts and projects that may or may not come to fruition.
