Megan Connelly - Production Design

Megan got her start backstage during Mary Poppins (Metropolitan Players). The question of how to make the magic carpet bag arose and she was determined to be the one to solve it! She then assisted in prop making for Wicked and We Will Rock You (Metropolitan Players) and was hooked. Her first solo venture into the props world was the Mystery Musical Vol. 1: The Addams Family (The Very Popular Theatre Company). Other productions include: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Hunter Drama), Rock of Ages (Hunter Drama), Peter Pan Jr (Hunter Drama), Mystery Musical Vol 2: Spamalot (The Very Popular Theatre Company), Oliver (Hunter Drama), The Addams Family (Wyong Musical Theatre Company), and Suzette Who Set To Sea (Stage Left Productions). When not backstage, Megan enjoys performing. She has been an active member of the Newcastle theatre industry since 2013, appearing in both musicals and plays across multiple theatre companies. Megan is excited to be creating magic for this production and, while normally considering herself a “Smarts”, she is so pleased to be made an honorary “Puff”.
