Meet the small (but mighty) team behind Masterclass
Clare joined Masterclass as Programme Director in 2020, having previously been Business Director of prison music charity Finding Rhythms. As an arts administrator she has also worked with commercial circus and subsidised theatre companies, prior to which she had a first career in retail and pharmaceuticals. Clare has catholic tastes in theatre, but is always more favourably disposed towards shows that publish their running time. She is a trustee of Lightbox Theatre.
Barra has worked in the theatre industry for over 15 years, spanning many different roles in creating, producing, and managing arts programmes, productions, festivals, and events with a wide range of audiences. He is the Artistic Director of LAStheatre – a company that creates large-scale immersive productions and award-winning family shows.
Barra is committed to making and delivering exceptional and exciting arts projects, broadening the diversity of voices in the arts, creating opportunities, nurturing talent and producing work that is accessible to all.
