MANDY PROFILE: https://stage.mandy.com/uk/theatre-professional/profile/bethany-barrington-davis

Skills Summary
My training in theatre, especially as a stage manager, has helped to me gain new skills as well as improve those I already have. I am a friendly, hard working person with good organisation and communication skills, two skills I believe are key to make a good stage manager. I always try to be approachable and supportive to everyone I work with.

In 2018, I became the first official team member of St Albans School of Acting, in the role of Company Stage Manager and Production Manager.

Along with working within all roles of a stage management team, I have experience in set builds, gets in and strikes, programming/plotting and operating on an ETC ion desk, Jands desk and Qlab. I am a registered member of Equity, SMA and BECTU.

Education
Currently studying a BA in Theatre Arts (Design and Technical Theatre) – Graduating in July 2018. At Middlesex University, I study on a Design and Technical Theatre pathway, training as a Stage Manager and Lighting Designer/Technician. Previous modules taken include ‘Applied Theatre’ and ‘Design, Application and Direction’. Modules I am currently study include ‘Contemporary Design Practice’, ‘Placement’ and ‘Theatre Arts Project’.
