Barry Sheppard

Vice-President

 

I am a graduate of Bristol University’s Drama Department.  My career has been in theatre management and production, notably at the University Theatre Manchester (where I worked alongside what is now the Royal Exchange Theatre Company and founded Contact Theatre) and at the Oxford Playhouse.  During this time I held honorary posts as an advisor with the Arts Council and with the Southern Arts Association, and various committee posts with the Theatrical Management Association (now Theatre UK), including that of Chairman of its Resident Managers Committee.  I later worked with WSG Productions as Administrative Producer of Whirligig Theatre, their touring children’s theatre arm. For fifteen years (1998-2013) I was Treasurer and Membership Secretary of the Society for Theatre Research, was Acting Chair 2016/17, and am now one of its Vice-Presidents.
