Student Information


Pippa Reilly is a graduate who specialises in ‘Lighting Programming and Design’.

Becoming more and more fascinated with lighting, she travelled up from West Yorkshire, England to RCS to gain new experiences, and further her studies from the basics of production technology. With a keen interest in lighting for Musical Theatre, Dance, as well as lighting for Screen, she hopes to explore all these areas throughout her promising career.
