I've been performing since I was 5 and a half years old in amateur theatre companies. I'm now working towards my Bronze Arts Award. My dream is to become a professional actor.
I went to see Northern Stage perform the play 'A Christmas Carol' in December and this is what I thought.

Yes, the stage was in the centre on the floor with a low railing separating the seats from the stage. However, from where I was sitting, you could stick your feet out underneath the railing and nearly trip the actors up! There wasn't a backdrop, but there were two pieces of static set (and a clock right up above some of the seats) next to some of the rows of seats. All of the rest of the set on stage was on trollies with wheels so that they could be wheeled on and off through four gaps in the railing to the offstage area which was pitch black and out of sight of the audience. Rigging on wheels was also used as set to create varying levels. All of the movable set was moved on and off stage as part of the production, quite often, while people were still on it!
