Previous Experience

Johann Fitzpatrick moved to Dublin in 2013 to pursue a degree in Drama and Theatre Studies from Trinity College Dublin. He subsequently spent all his free time working and designing for the Dublin University Players Theatre. After two years, he decided to focus full time on honing his skills as a practitioner and transferred to The Lir’s Stage Management and Technical Theatre course, from which he graduated in 2017. Having worked as a freelance technician and set builder for companies across Ireland and in his hometown of New York City, he is now studying for an MFA in Stage Design in the hopes of dismantling, examining, and rebuilding his creative process from the ground up.


Occasional actor and director, amateur musician and hobbyist woodworker (toys and instruments).
