Jimboomba’s Jenna Ward is stage manager of a show in Brisbane’s Anywhere Festival next month.
The 20-year-old, who has lived in Jimboomba all her life, is studying theatre and has developed a passion for stage managing.
The show DNA by Dennis Kelly is an all-weather show that will be performed outside in the Bert Hinkler Park in Wilston.
Torches are used as a source of light.
Ms Ward said she was approached to assist another stage manager because of the enormous task involved in an outdoor show.
“Since this production is outside of a traditional theatre, it will be challenging my skills as a stage manager in an exciting way,” she said.
DNA is described as a gripping high school drama that touches on the consequences of bullying.
Ms Ward is in her third year of a Bachelor of Arts in Contemporary and Applied Theatre at Griffith University’s Mt Gravatt campus.
She studied stage managing in her first year and has gained experience over the last two years.
“Since then my name has spread and I have continued loving it,” she said.
Ms Ward said she hoped to continue to work behind the scenes in theatre.
“I am also interested in lighting and sound; technology behind the scenes,” she said.
DNA is presented by Tee-ball Ticket Theatre.
