Charlie Lester

FOUNDER & VA

Hi I'm Charlie.

 

I started The Arts VA, in 2018, after 8 years at Cameron Mackintosh Ltd, where I worked on West End and international productions of Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon, Hamilton, Mary Poppins, Barnum, and more.

I have over 10 years experience working in the arts industry, a First Class B.A. Honours Degree in Drama and Performance, and a Masters in Producing Musical Theatre.

As a VA, I have created a working week where I have the flexibility to balance a phone call with a client, the school run, marketing my business and a coffee with a friend. I feel grateful that my  family can benefit from having me at home, and I can continue working in an industry I love with brilliant, creative people.

Jenny Sherriff

VA

Hi I’m Jenny.

 

I have a B.A. Honours Degree in English Literature, and before having my little boy in 2019, I spent 10 years working for various theatre production companies and theatres.

 

For 6 of these years I was at Cameron Mackintosh Ltd, where I worked on West End and international productions of Les Misérables, Mary Poppins, Hamilton, Phantom of the Opera, Barnum, Half a Sixpence and Miss Saigon.

 

From the first time I went to the theatre to see Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at age 7, I have always been passionate about theatre, and combined with my love of organisation, lists and spreadsheets, being a VA for the arts is my dream job.
