Miss Nightingale

Theatre Reviews

“Callum MacDonald‘s biography says he’s “a fresh face to the theatre industry…..with a growing portfolio”. If the lighting on Miss Nightingale is indicative of his work then his portfolio will grow substantially, there’s plenty of room for someone with such talent for lighting. It’s not easy to put in a “pop-up” lighting rig but there are no compromises here in the design – it looks beautiful”


Musical Theatre Review

“These are complemented by the lighting – Callum Macdonald’s design bounces off the costumes with enough punch to match the score.”


What’s On Stage

“outstandingly lit”

A Streetcar Named Desire

Ipswich Star

“enormously helped by a very atmospheric set which is lit brilliantly

Keep Colchester Cool

“The design, setting, lighting and a blistering soundtrack, set the mood perfectly”

The Crucible


“The stark puritan settings were splendid and the lighting design created the oppressive atmosphere well..”

Les Misérables, Schools Edition


“The minimalist set was used well but, and it’s a silly gripe, there was too much black. At times it swallowed, rather than highlighted, the performances, but this was offset by the excellent lighting design.”
