My first six months with Sadler’s Wells

Serina Lopez is Visitor Experience Intern at Sadler’s Wells.


I can’t believe I’ve completed my first internship placement at Sadler’s Wells. It sounds cliché but it feels like only yesterday that I first introduced myself as a Visitor Experience Intern.

Looking back at my time at Sadler’s Wells, the highlight for me was when I shadowed dressers during matinee and the evening performances of Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella.

It was so great to see all of the hard work that I do in the office, like liaising with security and dealing with queries from Front of House, all supports a bigger cause.


Shadowing the dressers was such a valuable experience. Prior to this opportunity, I never knew that so much hard work goes into making performers look good before they go on stage. I had no idea what level of preparation goes into maintaining that costume between every performance.

I am truly so happy and grateful that I am on this programme because I am sure that I would never have been able to get an insight like that.

Looking forward to the next 6 months, I am so excited to be the next Producing and Touring Intern!
