Ashley Smyth
Head of Technical Fringe 2018 , Holden Street Theatres
After working with us on Scorch in 2017 Ashley is journeying all the way from Ireland to once again cheer the hoards, and light the boards. With a career boasting production management, stage management, technician and Actor, her knowledge of theatre is vast. Her calm demeanor and incredible, never ending smile, she lights up more than the stage.
Eric Morel
Technical Manager , Holden Street Theatres
Eric has looked after The Arch and The Manse for the past four years and he is an asset to our team. Nothing it too much trouble for Eric and he is loved by all the companies that come across his stage. He makes a mean crepe, and brings a little bit of savoir-faire to the Fringe.
Guy Henderson
Production Assistant Fringe 2018, Holden Street Theatres
Whilst in his last year of a double degree, a Bachelor in Media and Arts, and after treading the boards for the last few years with the Uni Theatre Guild, Guy has chosen to explore the world of production behind the scenes. A smart guy with great Hair!
