About Anastasia

Anastasia always knew she was going to end up in the arts industry. She has danced since the age of two, teaching, as well as playing alto saxophone through primary and secondary school. It wasn’t until she started working backstage that Anastasia knew what she wanted to pursue. Stage management was an obvious choice and at NIDA she has widened her skills as a manager.

Anastasia has always had a love for physical theatre as well as musical theatre, but through her secondment at Monkey Baa Theatre Company, she also realised her love for children’s theatre and puppetry.
