Biography

I’m Cat and I’m a mature student who is just about to graduate from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School studying Production Arts and specialising in Stage Management. I previously worked in Heritage and have a degree in Museum & Artefact Studies awarded from Durham University. I worked in the Events & Exhibitions Department at The RSC for five years which gave me a love of theatre & propping – I’m tenacious in sourcing and acquiring props. I have worked at a number of theatres, in varying Stage Management roles, and am competent in both in-person and online productions. I am Covid trained and have experience of working under social distance guidelines. I’ve good communication and interpersonal skills, I’m eager to learn and positive and energetic.

Graduate Sahir Mehta
As soon as I visited the School, I fell in love with the place. Perhaps it sounds a bit irrational, but sometimes you get a vibe - and you just know! BOVTS gave me all the tools I needed to prepare for a career as an actor. Sahir Mehta, MA Professional Acting, 2018
