Staff attend Theatre Production of Chicago!
As part of our Wellbeing initiative to promote a good work/life balance and healthy attitudes towards downtime, CTK staff have visited a Theatre production of Chicago at the Bromley Churchill Theatre.
The trip was organised by Tim Olademeji and Amanda Haylock, who together sought the tickets and extended the invitation to staff across the three CTK sites.
As you might know, the Chicago play is an American musical black comedy-drama crime film that started its run on Broadway in the year 1975. It explores the themes of celebrity, scandal, and corruption in Chicago during the Jazz Age. Chicago centres on two murderesses who find themselves in jail together awaiting trial in 1920s Chicago.
Here’s what some of the staff members had to say about their weeknight wellbeing outing:
Amanda Haylock – Head of Performing Arts said, “What a wonderful experience to get back into the theatre and see a show that I love with my colleagues. It was great to get new staff involved and introduce them to the community spirit that CTK staff are so well known for.”
Tim Olademeji – Wellbeing Coordinator said, “It was fantastic! I take great pleasure in these outings because I know how beneficial spending time with friends and taking time out can be for your wellbeing.”
