MA Performance Design Student


Abigail Manard is an international student from the States who graduated in 2022 from Baldwin Wallace University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatrical Design, Directing and Acting.

Abigail has specialised in musical theatre during their time here at BOVTS but has enjoyed every opportunity they’ve had to work on productions. In their final term they are working on Dorian, directed by Phoebe Kemp, and designing a theoretical production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (under the direction of Derek Bond). In their second term, they were the Costume Designer for BOVTS spring production of A Midsummer Nights Dream, directed by Paul Chesterton. Abigail is very excited for the rest of their year and can’t wait to see what direction this course takes them in

Students developing and growing in confidence during their time here, seeing their work reaching professional standards in approach and execution; a student who intends to be a stage manager producing a wonderful sound design; a first year student making a lovely recording of a song for their recording project; tracking the careers of former students and seeing them be successful; being able to find a job opportunity for a recent graduate.
