Oliver Hynds


Lighting Design & Operation

Oliver is a young lighting designer working in musical theatre, plays and live music in and around Chester. He always enjoys the fresh challenge and excitement that each of OTMYTs productions brings. As well as designing for “On the Mark,” Oliver has also worked with “Tip Top Productions” at the Forum Studio Theatre, the Vanbrugh Theatre, and most recently at Theatre Clwyd and The Storyhouse, Chester.


As well as his design work, he jumps at any opportunity to learn from other creative professionals.   Most notably he has assisted award-winning lighting designer Andrew Ellis on the touring show Them/Us, produced by BalletBoyz.  He has also shadowed the technical team on the UK tour of Matilda at the Palace Theatre, Manchester. 

Oliver is unsure of what he wants to do in the future and is currently considering doing further study in lighting design or a career in Engineering having recently been awarded an Arkwright Engineering Scholarships.

Oliver is always eager to take something new and step out of his comfort zone. He particularly enjoys responding to the energy and drive of musical performances with light.
