Lisa Krugel

Lisa works as both a Stage Manager and a Stage Designer. Having graduated as an actor with a diploma in Speech and Drama from DIT (now TUD) in 2004, she found work (and on-the-job training) stage managing a show for The New Theatre which became a long-running touring production.

She returned to education to gain her HND in Technical Theatre from Inchicore CFE (2011). While there she re-ignited an early interest in Set Design which, after designing a few shows at Focus Theatre and The New Theatre, led her to becoming one of the first graduates of The Lir Academy’s MFA in Stage Design (2014). She has stage managed with companies such as LIZ ROCHE COMPANY (Dance), IRISH NATIONAL OPERA, ANU (site-specific theatre), and SMASHING TIMES (theatre/events).

Recent designs include:
Set and Costume: IN OUR VEINS (Abbey Theatre/Bitter Like A Lemon), GRIMM TALES, and BAROQUE OPERA DOUBLE BILL – (TUD), DALLIANCE, I AM A CAMERA, DAMASCUS and THE UGLY ONE (The Lir).
Set: THE HARVEST (WitchWork/The New Theatre), TEMPTRESS (Speckintime/High Seas), THE SIGNALMAN (WitchWork), and NORTHERN LIGHTS (Theatre Upstairs/Awake & Sing).
