“Exceptional producing career”: Becky Barber

Becky Barber has been appointed executive producer at Jonathan Church Theatre Productions, part of Trafalgar Entertainment, and will take up her new post on 17 January 2022.

Barber worked at Greene Light Stage, formerly Old Vic Productions, from 2007 until 2018. Her credits included the global productions of Billy Elliot: The Musical, Michael Frayn’s Noises Off, The Norman Conquests by Alan Ayckbourn, Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler and two Cole Porter musicals, Kiss Me, Kate and High Society.

Jonathan Church said, “I’m delighted to welcome Becky on board. We first worked together on the West End transfer from Chichester of Jonathan Kent's production of Noël Coward’s Private Lives in 2013. Since then Becky has enjoyed an exceptional producing career, working on an impressive and diverse range of productions. I look forward to Becky joining us to help lead and expand our work.”

Barber said, “I'm thrilled to be joining Jonathan and the team at JCTP. I’ve always admired Jonathan's work and he leads his company with the same passion and integrity with which he approaches his directing.

“As our industry moves towards recovery from the COVID crisis, I want to contribute to the positive change in our industry, rebuilding it to be better through creating exceptional theatre that embraces values of equality, diversity and inclusion.”

Barber replaces Georgia Gatti who is joining Neal Street Productions as theatre producer.
