On International Women’s Day we’re celebrating graduate Katie Bingham’s new role as Opera Holland Park’s first female Head of Stage.
Stage manager Katie talks to OHP about her career, the challenges she faces as a woman in the industry and about her role model, RWCMD visiting lecturer and production supervisor, Jacqui George.
“A definite role model for me would have to be Jacqui George, a South Wales and London-based Production and Stage Manager. I think she has great qualities as a strong, female practitioner in the industry: confident, calm, approachable and level-headed, with a good work/life balance.”
Katie graduated in 2016, and while she was at College she worked on many different productions including stage managing Figaro in the Dora Stoutzker Hall, and as ASM for Into the Woods, Cunning Little Vixen and The Duchess of Malfi.
