Stage Manager


I am an enthusiastic Stage Manager with drive, determination and a proven ability to  coordinate all aspects of an events or theatre company and ensure the successful delivery of its performances.

 I have proven skills and experience in people management , managing rehearsals, actors, technicians, props and costume fittings, and liaising with front of house staff and  directors.

I have a good understanding of both the technical and artistic elements of a performance so I could ensure it is delivered exactly to the director's or event's requirements.
