To Whom it may Concern
When asked to write a line or two about Jane and Megan for the DarkHorse website I was stumped, as I could compose a thesis on their relative merits.
In short, I have worked in the theatre industry for twenty years and known Jane for as long. She is a highly respected and knowledgeable stage manager, production manager and technical director, and has a dedication and passion for her work beyond words. Add to that intelligence, excellent communication skills and precise organisational abilities, and you can understand why everyone is immensely relieved when Jane is at the helm of a production.
Megan, though junior in years, is as impressive. Originally involved in stage management but with a strong interest in live sound, she has worked with me as co sound designer on several shows, and is so efficient and skilled that I now recommend her exclusively as a freelance sound engineer for all productions at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre. With an enquiring mind and an insatiable thirst for industry knowledge, she is exceptionally well-informed and also multi-skilled across theatre disciplines.
DarkHorse Productions therefore incorporates a combination that cannot fail. It is not an exaggeration to say that if you want to work with an ethical, professional and hard-working team and have complete peace of mind that the job will be done properly, use Jane and Megan.
