    About me

    I am an enthusiastic freelance stage manager, based in Colchester with experience of sourcing props, running rehearsals, operating lighting, sound and AV, rigging, and working on technically busy shows.

    I have a passion for devised, new and experimental theatre and have had experience working in the many different aspects of the theatre industry and feel that this benefits me by broadening my understanding and knowledge.

    I'm a very good people person and enjoy working as part of a team as well as on my own to achieve goals.

    Professional Recommendations

    Matt Gibson Sound Engineer

    I toured with Laura on a UK Tour in 2019, she was a fantastic Company Manager, who also expertly looked after the relights for the show.Laura is a very practical, hands on Company Manager, who was not phased by any of the challenges we faced on the tour, especially when there were several set and lighting issues.She was able to keep company moral high, even during difficult situations, but was also fair and strict when required.I would highly recommend Laura for any Stage Management positions.Matt Gibson :-)
