Arran is a freelance stage manager who trained at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire graduating in June 2019 with a First-Class Honours Degree in Stage Management. He has been lucky enough to have worked at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry on various different projects and grateful for the opportunities which they continue to offer him. He has also worked with other companies such as Phizzical Productions, Imagine Theatre Ltd and Wing-it Ltd.
Arran is in the early stages of his career. He is really passionate and keen to be able to engage with Black, Asian and ethnically diverse communities to have discussions and open up pathways to exploring the idea of having a career in offstage roles. Arran is in the process of trying to set up links with the local schools within his area to try and get offstage roles to be included within modules. It would be great to see more representation in offstage roles as I didn’t feel that I could see myself represented when I decided that I wanted a career within the industry. This has made me have the drive and determination to help change this.
