About Grace

Grace is an emerging Stage Manager and Technician who grew up on the Central Coast, NSW. She moved down to Sydney straight out of high school to study Stage Management & Technical Theatre. It’s no surprise her dedicated hobby of participating in community theatre both on and off stage since she was age 13 grew into a passion she would later strive to turn into her career.

Grace has actively engaged in numerous productions, both within and outside of her studies. From managing backstage to coordinating technical aspects, her studies have helped her hone her skills effectively collaborating with teams to ensure smooth execution of performances.

Grace has a passion for Stage Management and is eager to get out into the industry and continue to expand her knowledge & skills.
