Elizabeth Marshall (Lily)

My current position at Glyndebourne, as a wig technician and makeup artist, has given me a lot of experience and confidence in my abilities. I am passionate about theatre and love the live aspect. I am not fazed by high intensity situations, deadlines and short time frames for tasks. I am focused, hard-working, conscientious and I always put 100% effort in to every aspect of my work. I have great soft skills as I have worked with many different artists, ranging from children to seasoned professionals. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working on tour, within a small team in a fast-paced environment.
