NIDA acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which we learn and tell stories, the Bidjigal, Gadigal, Dharawal and Dharug peoples, and we pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past and present.
Jessie is an emerging Stage Manager focusing her work primarily in musical theatre and dance. Her love for theatre began when she was very young, and she hopes to spend her whole career within the performing arts. Throughout her time at NIDA, Jessie has worked on developing her stage management skills and has been a part of a variety of productions that she believes have helped shape her as a practitioner.
Since finishing her studies, she has worked as an Assistant Stage Manager on ‘Not Now, Not Ever – Live onstage with Julia Gillard’ (Michael Cassel Group); ‘The Wedding Singer’ (David Venn Enterprises); and the ‘Newcombe Medal 2022’ (SKP Events).
She is grateful for all the opportunities and knowledge that both NIDA and her various secondments in some of Australia’s biggest shows have provided her and looks forward to working in a field that brings her so much joy every day.
