Kate Cross is Director of the egg at Theatre Royal Bath. Starting in 1998 as Head of Education she worked alongside Theatre Royal staff and Board to create and build the egg, which opened in 2005. The egg is now a thriving centre for children’s theatre and creative learning, with close ties to Bath Spa University with whom it co-delivers an MA in Theatre for Young Audiences and Bath College with whom it delivers level 3 Performing Arts. The egg works with an eclectic range of theatre making artists to create contemporary, new work for national and international presentation.
Prior to Bath Kate worked for Salisbury Playhouse, Colway Theatre Trust and Beaford Arts, amongst others. She is the current Chair of ASSITEJ UK and former Trustee of children’s arts charity 5x5x5=creativity.
