RWCMD graduates take top spots in the stage management and technical theatre team for this year’s National Theatre production of War Horse.
The Stage Manager, Deputy Stage Manager, Head Rigger and Assistant Stage Manager/Book Cover on the UK tour all trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
Sarah-Jayne Davies won the position of Stage Manager, and her husband Mark Davies the position of Head Rigger. Elli Andrews will join them as Deputy Stage Manager, and Chris Deasey as Assistant Stage Manager/Book Cover – ensuring that the College is very well represented in the production!

Matthew Aubrey (Acting 2009) played the lead role of Albert in the West End production just six months after graduating.
