Episode 6: Presenting for Preschool Audiences with Sita Thomas
This week, we’re talking about presenting for preschool TV. Our guest is the fantastic Sita Thomas, who has been a presenter on Channel 5’s Milkshake! since 2015. As a presenter, Sita introduces TV shows, shares arts and crafts skills, teaches us about different cultures and traditions, leads us in dance routines and much more. Presenting is an incredibly varied role, demanding huge amounts of energy, enthusiasm and skill - and Sita’s here to tell us how it’s done.
As well as being a presenter, Sita is a director and movement director, having worked with National Theatre Wales, Tamasha, the National Youth Theatre, Out of Joint and many companies and organisations. She’s also an academic, teaching and lecturing at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and has been a guest lecturer and personal academic tutor at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Across all her work, Sita is committed to improving the representation of people from marginalised communities across stage and screen.
