Tom Smith

Sound Designer

Theatre Experience

I trained at LAMDA, where I first became interested in pursuing theatre sound as a career. After graduating I spent three years in house at York Theatre Royal, which gave me a brilliant grounding in producing and receiving theatre, as well as providing opportunities to increase my skills in designing, engineering and programming. In January 2018 I left YTR to go freelance, and have since worked on a mix of regional and touring productions.

As a Sound No. 1, I have experience in a wide variety of theatre, including drama, Shakespeare, new writing, pantomime and actor-musician. I am confident in programming and operating on a variety of consoles to a high standard under tight time pressures.
