It is with huge sadness that we announce the departure of Jo Gibson, who has been working as our Administrator since November 2009.
Jo, who was also employed as the Pleasance Theatre Administrator on a job share agreement, is leaving to join the staff of the Leicester Square Theatre.
Throughout the last year of growth and development within Islington Community Theatre, Jo has been instrumental in helping us move forward and professionalise our administration. We are incredibly sad to see her go and wish her all the very best in her future career.
We will not be re-appointing an administrator and are hoping to raise sufficient money so that we can employ a permanent General Manager from the end of the year. In the meantime, however, we're pleased to welcome Sarah Stott, who will be joining us as an administrative intern for the next 3 months.
As those who know Jo know, her favourite song in the world is Journey's Don't Stop Believing. As a tribute, and a way of saying thank you, Work in Progress members (all 30 of them) stormed Jo's leaving drinks on Thursday to provide their very own special rendition of the song.
Here's the video of the group singing - a strange and wonderful way to finish a session on political theatre. Apologies for the shaky camera work...
