    About me

    I have lived, worked and studied in central London for the past four years, and have strong connections with the city. Graduating with a 2.1 Design for Stage BA Degree at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London, I have designed sets and costume for a variety of live and speculative projects in opera, modern theatre and immersive performance.

    I would thoroughly enjoy the challenge of designing for a diverse range of venues. I am currently designing a set for a newly written play to be performed by 3 actors in a 70 seat small theatre, Tristan Bates theatre, Central London. The budget is very small and the set is designed to be made from cheap objects and to be dismantled and erected easily before and after every show.

    Most recently, I have been working for Collaborate Global events production company on Goodwood Revival 2019: Set Prop Sourcing, Prop Making & Set Dressing a mock up immersive film studio filming The Italian Job, and also other events including Actimel and Boots. I was working with other designers on these projects.

    I love the collaborative creative processes of design, especially the initial conceptual research phase and the team work involved in any production. Equally I am practiced at and enjoy working independently. I try to make simple bold statements in my design, sometimes challenging, whilst still conveying the narrative. I always try to come up with new and unexpected ideas. I am passionate about both learning from and contributing to the artistic vision of a producing theatre company and I am very keen to become more involved with the innovative nature of new writing and new productions.

    I have further experience in small budget multi-use design projects designed to dismantle and reassemble easily which I appreciate is essential in this project. I designed set and costumes for Let the Right One In (Angie Langfield) – a small budget production of £2,700 which had to be taken down and reassembled each day. I am particularly interested in your choice of non-naturalistic design, as this is something I explored in my set and costume design for Let The Right One In, by using a cold metal set to symbolise the cold environment/climate/ vampire main character. In the same play, I also re-purposed a structured made of trussing into a variety of different locations including a swimming pool. (Please see photos of this in my portfolio.) charlottemaggsdesigner.com

    This show is to go on tour around the UK in the future, and will be transported by van to each venue. And also, a small budget set for Midsummers Night Dream (Eric Loren) for the Embassy Theatre, Swiss Cottage.

    I have experience of in the round staging, as Assistant Set Designer for Norman Conquest’s designed by Simon Higlett 2017 at Chichester Festival Theatre. I would love the opportunity to explore in this format.

    I have recently worked with the British Youth Opera as Set & Costume Design Assistant to Jasmine Swan and Basia Binkowska (both Linbury Prize winners) Scoring a Century (David Blake) for the Peacock Theatre. Responsibilities included making and sourcing costumes, sourcing and making props.
