- At Michael Hall he was taught by: 1) Sally Schweizer, who wrote influential books on child development ("Well, I Wonder," Rudolf Steiner Press, 2006; "Under the Sky," Rudolf Steiner Press, 2009). She is the niece of the composer, Benjamin Britten. 2) Alastair Smith (stage management, lighting and sound). His West End credits as a technical stage manager included A Chorus Line (Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, 1976) and Annie (Victoria Palace, 1978), before he moved into management with Andrew Treagus Associates. His love of theatre was based around the production period, solving problems and "getting the show on the road". Those shows included big musicals such as Starlight Express (Apollo Victoria, 1984), Time (Dominion Theatre, 1986) and Sunset Boulevard (Adelphi Theatre, 1993), alongside dramas like St Mark's Gospel with Alec McCowen (Comedy Theatre, 1978) - for which he also designed the set - and the Royal Shakespeare Company's Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Ambassadors Theatre, 1986). After the 1987-88 Australasian tour of Starlight Express, he worked for the Really Useful Group, including many Andrew Lloyd Webber tryouts at the Sydmonton Festival. In 1999, he moved to Disney as general manager for the opening of The Lion King (Lyceum Theatre, 1999). 3) Simon Jessel (set design and building). 4) Daniele Gaillemin (directing). She is a senior teacher at Michael Hall School, Great Britain and has been practicing theatre for over 4 decades. She has mastered various art forms and has directed over 100 plays during this time.
- Star Puppets was the name of the puppet theatre company run by Steve and Bonina Moran, who trained their son, Raphael Moran, in the arts and techniques of puppetry, from music to costume to lighting to acting.
