Hayley Stoddart – General Manager

Hayley grew up dancing in the Newcastle area and eventually teaching for over 10 years. It was this experience that saw her co-found the Musical Theatre courses here at Hunter Drama.

Her theatre credits include City of Newcastle Drama nominations for Choreography for the productions Beauty and the Beast JR and Alice in Wonderland JR, both for Hunter Region Drama School. Hayley performed in Mary Poppins for Metropolitan Players in 2015.

Hayley has been involved in nearly every show Hunter Drama has ever done beginning with sewing mice props for The Witches in 2008.  Her motto is  “The secret of all victory lies in the organization of the non-obvious” and does all those jobs no one would ever think about for each and every production.

Hayley originally studied and attained a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy and spent many years, until 2019, working for NSW Health. She is also our resident safety guru as she has a Certificate IV in Work Health & Safety!
