ROHAN MCDERMOTT

LIGHTING PROGRAMMER, ASSISTANT & TECHNICIAN

I am a lighting programmer deeply passionate about the world of theatre and live events. Graduating from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in 2019 marked the beginning of a fulfilling journey that led me to join the West End production of SiX the Musical as Head of Lighting.

Over my three-year tenure in the West End production, I had the opportunity to develop a broad range of skills while working with new technologies. In addition to my commitments to SiX, I found joy in contributing to other projects, such as programming for English Touring Opera and as assistant LD for the Waitress UK tour.

Having left my full-time position at SiX the Musical in 2022, I am now eager to explore new opportunities in the theatre and live events industry. Based in London, I am flexible and ready to travel across the UK and internationally. I look forward to bringing my passion for lighting and technical expertise to diverse projects and collaborating with fellow professionals to bring magic to the stage.

Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to connect!
