Iona Hicks

BA Production Arts


Iona is specialising in Stage Management during her final year at BOVTS and has enjoyed maintaining carpentry skills during her studies. She recently completed a 5-week placement at the Donmar Warehouse as the Stage Management Intern on Macbeth, Directed by Max Webster.

Previous credits include: Stage Manager, A Very Expensive Poison (Circomedia), The Nobodies (The Wardrobe), Scenes with Girls (The Wardrobe). Deputy Stage Manager, Jekyll & Hyde (Tobacco Factory Theatres). Assistant Stage Manager, This House (Tobacco Factory Theatres), Henry IV (Bristol Old Vic, Weston Studio). Construction Assistant, Catastrophe Bay (Bristol Old Vic, Main Stage), Loam (Bristol Old Vic, Main Stage).

One of my favourite parts about BOVTS is that it feels ‘homegrown’. From the set to the costume, lighting, acting and sound, every single aspect of a theatre production or film is down to the students. The location of Clifton is so serene and the School being so small everyone knows each other and it feels so personal and special. Violet Morris, BA Professional Acting Student
