Kellie Hageman is a Los Angeles-based Stage Manager. Born and raised in New Jersey, Kellie found a passion for the arts early on in her life, and went on to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University to strengthen her analytical nature. While at Purdue, she continued her pursuit of the theatrical arts by leading the Purdue Performance Collaborative, the university’s only completely student-run theater organization. Kellie has found the perfect marriage of the artistic and the technical within the world of stage management. When she lived in the Midwest, Kellie worked as both a stage manager and an assistant stage manager for Pinewood Performing Arts in Lincoln, Nebraska on three of their summer productions (The Little Mermaid, Legally Blonde the Musical, and The Addams Family). After moving to the Los Angeles area, she stage managed the South Pasadena Theatre Workshop’s production of Our Country’s Good. Kellie’s CalArts credits include assistant stage managing Roberto Zucco and Rain-River-Ocean as well as stage managing Seven Hoshi. In addition for a long-standing love for theater, Kellie is passionate about all forms of creative storytelling, be it animation, video games, playing Dungeons & Dragons, or even just swapping stories with her friends. She looks forward to seeing where the next steps of her artistic journey lead her!
