Erin Caitlín Karn
Theatre Producer | Stage Manager | Creative based in York
Currently the Associate Producer for Baby Wants Candy (The Completely Improvised Musical), working as a Producer and Stage Manager for the run of their titular show at Edinburgh Fringe 2022, and debuting Shamilton: the Impovised Hip-Hop Parody Musical in the UK.
I am the producer for London-based theatre company Bee in my Beanie. We recently performed Aamira and Gad, an immersive puppetry show for children about finding hope in conflict, at Vault Festival 2020. We received some stellar reviews, including a 5-star and a 4-star, then ended with a sell-out show.
I produced and stage-managed the sell-out Edinburgh Fringe 2018 debut of Alfred Hitchcock’s Writers’ Room, following the success of my directing debut for my own adaptation an Oscar Wilde’s classic, The Importance of Being Frank, which was also a sell-out at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017. In January 2019, I was a writer for Bee in my Beanie's 4-star scratch theatre night, I'm Sorry But..; a show exploring women's anger, from the mundane to the profane.
At the University of Reading, I was the Secretary (2017-18) and President (2018-19) of Reading University Drama Society. During these two years, I worked collaboratively to set up an annual Arts Showcase, which included arts societies across campus performing to raise money for a local charity, The Ollie Young Foundation. In January 2019 we launched the first-ever Rough Sketch Writing Festival; this ran for two nights and showcased the new writing talent from students at Reading.
At the Edinburgh Fringe 2019, I was working as a production team member for Baby Wants Candy (The Completely Improvised Musical). Whilst a stagehand and flyerer for both of their shows, I was also a dresser on their show Thrones! The Musical Parody.
