We’ve gone across the sea to Dublin and New York City!  See what they have to say:

"If you are looking to keep your students motivated and spend quality time with these fantastic people then book this class now. Not only did they motivate my students, but also me.  Seeing people who share the same ideals as you, who back up what you have been saying to your students and do it all through laughter and professional integrity, is fantastic. My only complaint is that we could not do it in person".

"The Lir will be inviting Sam and Julia back at any future opportunity we have - their Olympics Masterclass is a must-do experience for any students studying the craft of Stage Management and Technical Theatre. Engaging, well prepared, and like nothing I've seen before, this is a once-off opportunity to showcase how exciting, complex, and pressured a career in Stage Management can be! "

Kate Ferris

Head of Stage Management

The Lir Academy 

“We were totally blown away by your Masterclass and it has certainly given some inspiration and hope to the students (and staff) during this strange time we currently find ourselves in. It was definitely the best end of term finale we could have wished for”! 

Jacqui Findlay

"Sam and Julia delivered their Masterclass to over 40 SM students across all 3 years of their degree course. And what an engaging, entertaining and enlightening afternoon it was. Highly recommended to anyone interested in Stage Management whether a beginner or seasoned professional. It reminded me why I went into this profession in the first place and why it’s still something I love."

Course Leader Stage Management

"Sam and Julia provided an enriching, engaging, and extremely entertaining seminar that provided valuable industry insight for our stage management students. Their relaxed, approachable manner showed, through exclusive videos, anecdotes, and extensive Q&A sessions, a very human side to the world of global-scale events. We will definitely be using Orange Jackets again and would absolutely recommend Sam and Julia without hesitation".

Nick Rogerson

"Sam and Julia’s Masterclasses were engaging, informative, interactive and most importantly full of fun, joy and positivity.  I could clearly see our students were absorbed, and the advice and stories that Sam and Ju were telling will be invaluable to them as they begin to embark on their own careers. THANK YOU!"

"The Mountview Production Arts students loved Sam and Julia’s Olympic Masterclass – it was one of the highlights of the lockdown. Not only was it thoroughly engaging and informative, it also highlighted the positive attitude needed to flourish in this industry".

Helen Barratt

Head of Stage Management

"The opportunity to hear first-hand of the challenges, the highs and lows, and ultimately the joy of producing one of the most memorable events of the 21st century so far is a genuine inspiration to any graduating student entering in to the industry. No situation is unsurmountable for this team, even during “lockdown”, Sam and Julia delivered!"

Daz James

Course Leader for MA Stage & Event Management

"Thank you so much for the Masterclass, I’ve already had several messages from students saying how fantastic and inspiring it was and both of you as well.  I’m going to do my best to ensure we get you in every year"!

Alix Abram

"I found the online version of the Olympic Masterclass as stimulating and interactive as the face to face version. Nothing was lost in the online delivery and the excitement and passion of you both as presenters and practitioners was clearly conveyed".

Claire Porter

“Sam and Julia’s talk to the stage management students at Guildhall was inspiring and entertaining – a great double act. They truly illustrated not only the depth and breadth of this industry but also THE passion and fun that the industry inspires.  The students were empowered about their individual futures”.
