Before studying at NIDA Jared spent 2015 exploring theatremaking across all disciplines. It is then he found a passion for stage management and musical theatre which drove him to apply to NIDA. While at NIDA, Jared had the privilege to develop his own technical and stage management skills and has relished the opportunity to work with some of the most talented and passionate cast, crew and creatives in Australia. In his final year he was fortunate to be on secondment with The Wizard of Oz and The Book of Mormon companies, both with the Gordon Frost Organisation. These experiences further cemented his passion for stage management. Jared wishes to thank his family and friends for all their past, present and future love and support.
