Bearwood resident and Birmingham REP’s wig and makeup maestro Andrew Whiteoak (he’s a lecturer as well...busy chap) couldn’t wait to tell us his exciting news.
The theatre now works very closely with UK’s leading hair and beauty supplier, Ellisons, and they have been shortlisted for their partnership at this year’s Arts & Business Awards at London’s BFI Southbank on 21st May!
Andrew has worked at the REP for over 19 years, designing and creating wigs, hairstyles and makeup for countless theatre productions ranging from Dishwashers (with David Essex, yes please!) though to Roald Dahl’s The Witches and the wonderful B-movie inspired musical Little Shop of Horrors.
He’s also designed and created styles for Maureen Lipman, Gary Barlow and Martin Freeman too.
Good Luck Andrew – we’re dye-ing to hear how you get on!
