Daniel Assetta was part of the recent WICKED cast and has just been announced as Rum Tum Tugger in the upcoming tour of CATS the Musical. He shares his top ten tips for surviving being on tour for the first time.


  1. Surround yourself with the best people. The Wicked cast were the most incredible I have ever met so that was easy.


  1. Printed photos of your family and friends to keep you company when you miss home.


  1. A beginners visual step-by-step cookbook.


  1. Instructions from your mum on ironing and how to use a washing machine & dishwasher.


  1. Viber (The iPhone App) so you can call loved ones from other countries


  1. A budget. It’s very easy to get excited by being in a different place but its important to keep track of what is going in and how many sneakers you are buying.


  1. An awesome playlist of your favourite songs that make you feel ready for the day.


  1. A good set of TV shows that can fill your down time. I’m currently hooked on Game of Thrones, Arrow and The Flash.


  1. Learn how to condense your life to only the necessary items to fit inside one suitcase.


  1. Last, but not least, you have to enjoy every minute of the process. If you are lucky enough to be travelling whilst doing something you love be grateful and take in every minute. I promise you it will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life.
