Annette Silva is a Wardrobe Assistant and has been working professionally in the performing arts for approximately 15 years. Annette fell into the backstage world of theatre largely due to her lack of interest in traditional sports – apparently, gymnastics and ballet weren’t “real” sports. Annette’s music teacher asked her to join the school’s light and sound team in lieu of doing the compulsory weekly school sporting torture and she hasn’t looked back since.
Annette went on to study Technical Production at university and there she found her niche in the land of costume. Since then, Annette has had the privilege of working across many different disciplines – opera, ballet, drama, circus and musicals to name a few – and across many different cities and countries.
Annette fell in love with the industry and the people within it and thrives on the challenges each day brings.
