Mandy Ivory-Castile


I am currently the Head of Production and Planning at Sherman Theatre in Cardiff.

I am originally from East London where I started working on the London Fringe in the early nineties. I spent 11 years at the Pleasance Edinburgh and Pleasance London, starting as venue crew in Pleasance Two and Stage Manager in Pleasance London, before eventually becoming Production Manager and Technical Operations Manager.

Everything leads back to Edinburgh and the Pleasance for me. Working at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for 11 years, meeting and working with such amazing people in the greatest arts festival was the most incredible learning experience.

I have worked in small & mid-scale touring throughout the UK and occasionally internationally, working as Production Manager at New Perspectives Theatre Company for 10 years.

Prior to joining the Sherman Theatre, I was Head of Production at the Mercury Theatre in Colchester.

I am also a trustee of The Northcott Theatre, Exeter.
