This is what I wanna do with my life. I’m currently Stage Managing a one man show for uni assessment, and while I feel truly fucked over with this assessment, I still know that I wanna be a professional Stage Manager. I was recently stage crew for a local production of Les Mis and absolutely loved the thrill of it; the adrenaline of rushing to set each scene in the short time frame. Now, that same company is looking at me for Stage Manager for their big musical next year (rumours of either Strictly Ballroom or Jekyll and Hyde), and I’m praying to all the theatre gods I get it. The thrill of making other people look and sound good, the thrill knowing I’ve helped entertain people and share the story of the musical is what I live for. As a Stage Manager I hope to end up traveling, and eventually move and work full time in the U.S on Broadway productions. That is my dream. Whilst I’ve had some hiccups along the way, that hasn’t scared me off, if anything, it makes me want to work harder at it.
This is my life. Theatre is my drug. I was made for Stage Management. Let the journey begin.
