I have been working full time in Stage Management since graduating from the Guildford School of Acting in 2002. My experience throughout these years has established and matured from a variety of productions both in the west end and on national tours including musicals, plays & pantomimes.

I am punctual, dedicated and hard working. I work well under pressure and to deadlines and am always ready for a challenge. I value good communication and the importance of working together. I work constructively to build a good team rapport and a positive atmosphere.

My roles in previous employment have required me to work as a key member of the team, and I pride myself on providing excellent communication between all departments as well as good company care.

From 2006-09 I was on the board of directors at the Stage Management Association; which supports and represents professional Stage Management in the UK.

"Martin is one of the very best DSMs I've ever encountered during 23 years in the theatre. He's tactful, reliable, diligent, efficient, friendly, enthusiastic, funny, intelligent, thoughtful, and, frankly, invaluable. I would have him as my DSM on every show if I could. The only problem is that he is so good I fear he'll never be available."

Christopher Luscombe, Director. 


“Martin is one of the most likeable, professional, accurate and reliable Deputy Stage Managers I have ever worked with. He is a joy to work with and all my production teams have felt the same way about him. Nothing ever seems too much trouble and he is profoundly committed to creating the best possible theatre. That is why I have no trouble in recommending him to you without reservation. But be warned - I will be approaching him at the next available opportunity.”

Tony Graham, Director.



“I have worked with Martin on several shows and hope to work with him on many more. He is completely trustworthy, hard working and calm, always good humoured and takes everything in his stride. He is extremely popular within the company and can be relied on to boost morale on any given occasion. I would not hesitate to recommend him, and indeed have done many times in the past.”

Helen Barratt, Company Manager.
